According to the book "Of Men and Giants" in the first game many Giants were brought to Thaermore "from the lands beyond Barrea and forced to work the mines, smashing rock and carrying ore."

You are correct. The same book I mentioned in this post also mentions elves.
"First, a note concerning Giants: they are not the feeble-minded creatures of popular conception. They are, in fact, highly socialized beings equal to that of men or elves, though perhaps their primitive speech patterns and rituals make them appear less civilized. It was this prejudice that led to the giants' enslavement and eventual revolt of the race of giants."
Dang. Okay, I'll just have to get myself a pet elf in Book III.
