Post Chapter XVI, The Coming of Glaurung

1)When the orcs invaded Brethil, did Turin have any other choice than to once again take up arms ?

2) Why did they take the bodies of the first invading band of Orcs and hang them from tress?

3) Dorlas argues that the counsels of Brandir were in vain, but Brandir stated that his counsels were ignored. Would it have ultimately done any good for the people of Brethil to follow the counsles of Brandir?


This one could take a long answer;
4)How does Glaurung, the first of the Great Worms, compare with Smaug, one of the last? How were they similar, and how were they different?

Not really, it would have been expected of him since he is somewhat of a natural leader and is still in good condition.

2) Why did they take the bodies of the first invading band of Orcs and hang them from tress?

Probably as an effort to lower the morale of or scare off the orcs who came after, and to demonstrate their strength.
