Do you see parallels between LOTR and what was happening in the world at that time, WWII,etc? Examples?

I've heard people compare the Shire chapters at the end of the book to the state of England after the war with rationing, etc. I also read a forward by Tolkein where he vehemently protested that paralleles existed.
