|J.R.R. Tolkien's The Return of the King CED|
Sam encounters many dead orcs and surmises they fought to the death over Frodo's mithril coat (Side 1, 31:30).
"Sam strode forward. Sting glittered blue in his hand. The courtyard lay in deep|
shadow, but he could see that the pavement was strewn with bodies. Right at his
feet were two orc-archers with knives sticking in their backs. Beyond lay many
more shapes; some singly as they had been hewn down or shot; others in pairs,
still grappling one another, dead in the very throes of stabbing, throttling,
biting. The stones were slippery with dark blood."
