Battle of Angren


Gondor had mounted a series of "descents" (amphibious demonstrations or raids) earlier with its new Coastal Fleet, in support of full-blown land operations. On 8 September 1664 a joint expedition was sent to overrun the haradan town of Kas Shafra. On 23 September, Ithilgonnost was taken, but due to dithering by military staff such time was lost that Kas Shafra became unassailable, and the expedition abandoned Ithilgonnost and returned to Gondor on 1 October. Despite the operational failure and debated strategic success of the descent on Kas Shafra, Captain of the Ships and Steward Dior of Emyn Arnen – who saw purpose in this type of asymmetric enterprise – prepared to continue such operations.

An army was assembled under the command of Ulraed Curimardin, future lord of Tumladen; he was aided by hîr Gwindor Falathar. The contracted naval escorts for the expedition were commanded by aerhîr (temporary and supernumerary) Ormond Raudfêrn, Luco Nepos and Alassar Abad-Eithel.
