That makes things more difficult to be sure. Only that road can support the movement of my four thousand men. We simply do not have the time or the resources to ferry that many warriors across the Anduin, and moving them through the forests of Ithilien in a wide sweep would be far too slow and take too much time. If we take such a course, the war will be ended before my men get there! No, they must retake Harlond, and they will need me to lead them in this effort.
