It is inappropriate to call Turin insane; he as is well stated above, cursed. The curse upon Hurin and his kin are well documented in the Silmarillion and UT. Hurin is forced to watch Melkor's...

I can only provide a possible scenario that satifies JRRT's passages.

It is safe to assume that Isildur would have been near at hand during this final fight, as he was second in command; this...
