The Grey Company by Jef Murray

The Grey Company was a company of thirty Northern Dúnedain commanded by Aragorn's kinsman Halbarad.


The company, aided by Elladan and Elrohir, they rode south to fight beside their Chieftain Aragorn in the War of the Ring. They found him near the Fords of Isen, accompanied him through the Paths of the Dead,[1] and on to the Battle of the Pelennor Fields, where Halbarad fell.[2]
