Tolkien lived in one of the greatest periods of upheaval, strife, and societal change in human history: from 1914 through 1945, the world seemed to be on fire both literally and ideologically. It was just a few years before the publication of The Hobbit that the Nazi regime came to power in Germany. It was also during this period that Tolkien created and gave shape to the Middle-earth legendarium. What was Tolkien’s experience of this evil regime like? What was his attitude towards them?
