Abstract This episode of Clash of the Gods presents the real story behind our most renowned modern myth - that classic story of good vs. evil, fought in the world of Middle Earth. We enter creator J.R.R. Tolkien's fantastical world of hobbits, orcs, and wizards, and uncover the real life influences that shaped his epic fantasy, The Lord of the Rings. Intriguing connections and parallels are drawn from this epic saga to the battlefields of World War I and the Bible.
