The battle was fought on the night of 2 March III 3019. The armies of Erkenbrand's Rohirrim, commanded by Grimbold and Elfhelm, fought Saruman's forces at the Fords of Isen. However, being severly outnumbered, the Rohirrim were forced to pull back, and the shield wall they had made being broken in the process. Saruman was victorious, and the Riders of Rohan scattered and retreated.
