Tolkien, the War of Wrath, or the Great Battle was the final war against Morgoth at the end of the First Age.
In the end the Valar thrust him "through the Door of Night, beyond the Walls of the World, into the Timeless Void", where he remains until the Final Battle and the Day of Doom, and those doors are forever guarded by Ëarendil.
The wreckage of the war was immense; most of the land west of the Ered Luin was laid waste and soon after sank beneath the waves.

 In Feanor's Footsteps
The War of Wrath is an exception to this convention, because the narrative states that those Elves who remained free (on the Isle of Balar) did not take part in the war.
Rather, the Elven war was part of the mythology from The Book of Lost Tales, and is called "the Faring Forth (of the Eldar)" or "the March of the Elves of Kor".
This earlier tradition bears only a vague resemblance to the War of Wrath, but it sheds some light on the traditions which might have been utilized to construct the tale of the war.

For it is not the business of a private individual to declare war, because he can seek for redress of his rights from the tribunal of his superior.
Now, among the faithful, carnal wars should be considered as having for their end the Divine spiritual good to which clerics are deputed.
Therefore, for the purpose of safeguarding the common weal of the faithful, it is lawful to carry on a war on holy days, provided there be need for doing so: because it would be to tempt God, if notwithstanding such a need, one were to choose to refrain from fighting.

 Is It Always Sinful To Wage War?

the authority of the sovereign by whose command the war is to be waged.
Wherefore Augustine says: "A just war is wont to be described as one that avenges wrongs, when a nation or state has to be punished, for refusing to make amends for the wrongs inflicted by its subjects, or to restore what it has seized unjustly."

So, in seeking for details on the War of Wrath, we must concede that it is no better conceived of or elucidated by J.R.R. Tolkien than are the events which unfold as background for the handful of our most ancient Germanic stories.
The War of the Jewels tells us that the Third Kinslaying occurred in the year 538 and that the last free Elves and Men fled to Balar in 540.
The War of Wrath may be better left unimagined, for the task of filling its years with deeds and heroes and journeys would easily constitute another Silmarilion-length text.

What is more, the "war on terrorism" won’t provide anything like the full employment of the 1940s war economy, when auto factories, for example, ceased to produce cars in favor of tanks and planes.
So, in its war against terrorism, a leading and respectable member of congress proposes that indiscriminate killing of civilians in the pursuit of a political and military goal is fully justified.

Ingwion (Ingwiel in earlier mythologies) was the leader of the Host of the Vanyar which marched in the War of Wrath.
In an early account of the War of Wrath (pre-LoTR Silmarillion), the Vanyar's role seems to have been to serve as a diversion by landing near Eglarest.

 Summa. Of War, Art. 1   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Now those who wage war are threatened by Our Lord with punishment, according to Matthew 26:52: "All that take the sword shall perish with the sword." Therefore all wars are unlawful.
But war is contrary to a Divine precept, for it is written (Matthew 5:39): "But I say to you not to resist evil"; and (Romans 12:19): "Not revenging yourselves, my dearly beloved, but give place unto wrath." Therefore war is always sinful.
Reply OBJ 3: Those who wage war justly aim at peace, and so they are not opposed to peace, except to the evil peace, which Our Lord "came not to send upon earth" (Matthew 10:34).

 Encyclopedia of Arda: Glamdring
The fact that it survived the War of Wrath, though, tells us that it must have left Beleriand before the end of the First Age, perhaps carried eastward by a band of Orcs
In this case, though, we would need to explain how it was lost a second time, and how Elrond (who was with the Exiles of Gondolin at the end of the First Age) had apparently forgotten about it.
If it is difficult to explain how Glamdring escaped destruction in the War of Wrath, its escape from the depths of Khazad-dûm is doubly puzzling.

It was this service in the final war against Morgoth which ensured that the Edain of Hithlum (and whatever Edain from Brethil may have joined them) would be rewarded by the Valar with the gift of the island in the Sea that became Numenor.
In short, the War of Wrath must have produced two waves of migration: one coming from the east to the west as new lands rose up and destroyed the Sea of Helcar, one coming from the west to the east as people and evil creatures fled the destruction of Beleriand.

In the war of the Last Alliance, the dwarves of Moria were among the few Naugrim who fought, and they at least fought against Sauron.
It appears likely that Moria was retaken by the dwarves after the War of the Ring, since they possessed considerable amounts of mithril again at the rebuilding of Minas Tirith.
