The Battle of Cair Andros was a conflict between Sauron's servants and the Gondor defenders of the city of Cair Andros during The War of the Ring.

Assault and Battle

At around the same time as The Battle of the Pelennor Fields, a force of 6000 Orcs and Easterlings assaulted Cair Andros. Upon sight of the attacking force, more than 1500 Gondorian Defenders promptly shut the gates, blocking the entrance to Gondor's famed highway. The Orcs and Easterlings began to cross the bridge. Many were shot down by archers on the walls. Some got through, however, and ended up breaking down the gate of Cair Andros with a ram. As soon as the gate was down, the cowardly Lord of Cair Andros fled the city and was never heard from again.
