" Dark faces. We have not seen Men like these before, no, Sméagol has not. They are fierce. They have black eyes, and long black hair, and gold rings in their ears; yes, lots of beautiful gold. And some have red paint on their cheeks, and red cloaks; and their flags are red, and the tips of their spears; and they have round shields, yellow and black with big spikes. Not nice; very cruel wicked Men they look. Almost as bad as Orcs, and much bigger. Sméagol thinks they have come out of the South beyond the Great River's end..."
Harad is an exotic land to the south of Middle-earth consisting of many separate tribes. Due to their fierce hatred for the men of West, they allied together with Sauron and Mordor, and their armies attacked the forces of Gondor throughout the Third Age.
Harad units can be accessed when a Mordor player buys the spell 'Reinforcements of Harad'. This summons Haradrim cavalry and a Mumakil to aid the player. These units use command points and march in from outside the battlefield.
