The End of the Third Age is the title of Part One of Sauron Defeated, and is also Part Four of The History of The Lord of the Rings, but it was also published separately as a lone paperback edition in September of 2000 by Houghton Mifflin (US) (ISBN 0-618-08356-1).

The End of the Third Age contains J.R.R. Tolkien's many early drafts of the large story that would later become in 1949 the second half of The Return of the King, as well as his sketches of stories' chief locations. These drafts, which Christopher Tolkien first compiled around 1992, make up the book's eleven chapters, and are each accompanied by Christopher's notes and commentary. Most of these chapters would evolve (with unchanged titles) into Book Six of The Return of the King.
