What I was saying, though, was not simply that Morgoth won in a battlefield sense, but that he succeeded in perverting one of the greatest of Men: ruining Hurin, turning him into an agent of evil, was a far greater victory than merely killing him. The goal of the Devil after all is not our death but our damnation.
The entire plot of The Lord of the Rings could be said to turn on what Sauron didnít know, and when he didnít know it.
