365 Days of Middle-earth ~ Day 213: the Host of Valinor

The Host of Valinor (also known as the Host of the West) was the army of the Valar. The Host, led by Eönwë, consisted primarily of the Valar and Maiar (among them Oromë); the Vanyar and the Noldor also marched with the Host; and the Teleri agreed to sail its ships. With the assistance of the Eagles and Eärendil, the Host of Valinor destroyed the power of Morgoth during the Great Battle at the end of the First Age.
