it's funny because Lord of the Rings was based on the authors experiences in the war.

tolkien has very specifically said that although he started writing lotr while he was fighting in WWI, it is in no way an allegoy for the war.

Read the goddamn foreword by Tolkien himself, he says none of the book is based on the war.

it was based on it as in the sense of his description and feelings of war and how when the hobbits went back they lived normal lives but were never the same although people saw them in the same way
