|J.R.R. Tolkien's The Return of the King CED|
Back at Minas Tirith, Grond is used to ram in the great gate of the city (Side 2, 05:57).
"Great engines crawled across the field; and in the midst was a huge ram,|
great as a forest-tree a hundred feet in length, swinging on mighty chains.
Long had it been forging in the dark smithies of Mordor, and its hideous head,
founded of black steel, was shaped in the likeness of a ravening wolf; on it spells of ruin lay.
Grond they named it, in the memory of the Hammer of the Underworld of old.
Great beasts drew it, orcs surrounded it, and behind walked mountain-trolls to wield it.
