During the [[War of the Ring]], Saruman sent a large force of Orcs backed by [[Dunlendings]] and two battalions of [[Uruk-hai]] in {{TA|3019}} in the [[First Battle of the Fords of Isen]], with Prince [[Théodred]] being slain per his orders. This was done both to allow him and his master, Sauron, full control over Rohan as part of the latter's war on the West, but also to more easily allow Saruman himself to dispatch parties of Orcs on routes the [[Fellowship of the Ring]] was likely to take. Such a troop joined by [[Orcs of Mordor]] and "northerners" ambushed the company at [[Amon Hen]], mortally-wounding [[Boromir]] and capturing the halflings [[Meriadoc Brandybuck]] and [[Peregrin Took]]. Near the eaves of [[Fangorn Forest]] however, the Orcs were attacked by the Riders of Rohan led by [[Éomer]] and slain to the last.<ref>{{TT|Riders}}</ref>

Saruman's host overwhelmed Rohirrim defenders in the [[Second Battle of the Fords of Isen]], allowing his army of ten thousand Orcs (mostly Uruk-hai) reinforced by Dunlending hordes to push through towards [[Helm's Deep]] where King [[Théoden]] had chosen to make his stand. Though initially gaining the upper hand due to superior numbers and the machinery they had, the [[Battle of the Hornburg]] ended with the crushing defeat of Saruman's forces. Bitter at the destruction the wizard had dealt to their forest, the [[Ents]] of [[Fangorn Forest|Fangorn]] set out towards Isengard, laying down the walls, crushing the Orcs and flooding the fortress.
