A city ruined by wrath...

The ruin of Osgiliath

Source photographic elements: Dunstanburgh Castle in Northumberland, Whitby Abbey, East Yorkshire and architectural elements in the City of York and Leeds

“For that is the ruin of Osgiliath on either side of Anduin, which our enemies took and burned long ago.  Yet we won it back...we hold still the near half of Osgiliath.  For a little while.  But we await now a new onslaught there.  Maybe the chief onslaught of the war that comes.”

The Return of the King Chapter I Minas Tirith p.764-5
