"From 'A Tolkienist's Perspective Blog' : a two part article part 1 part 2 about the military structure in Mordor. There is a hierarchy chart if you want a summary.

Was the rapid collapse of the military following the destruction of the ring indicative of the fragility of this structure , and its susceptibility to a decapitation strike ? Would a flatter hierarchy or something similar to the Imperial Military or Starfleet have been more resilient?"

    Everyone knows the collaps was inevitable. They didn't get enough sunshine to sustain themselves. See this article: unexpected-deficiency/ []

    We only ever 'see' the crapy, volcanic-fortress parts of Mordor. Tolkien was always clear (speaking through Aragorn or Faramir, IIRC) about the vast slave farms of southern Mordor, around Lake Nurn.
