      One gets the feeling that "industrialized technology" is what Saruman has
      been producing, although we're never quite shown what, or how.

      If it's driven by wood as fuel (the trees he's been chopping down) it doesn't
      seem terribly advanced; yet he apparently blows up the wall at Helm's Deep
      with something resembling gunpowder.
