Who other than Tolkien could write oratory such as this:
Sons of Gondor, of Rohan, my Brothers!
I see in your eyes the same fear that would take the heart of me. The day may come when the courage of men fails, we forsake our friends, and we break all bonds of fellowship, but it is not this day.
An hour of woes and shattered shields when the age of Men comes crashing down, but it is not this day.
This day we fight!
By all that you hold dear, from this good earth, I bid you stand! Men of the West!
