Dumai's Wells - WoT - Robert Jordan
Emond's Field - WoT - Robert Jordan
Chain of Dogs - Deadhouse Gates - Steven Erikson
Dros Delnoch? - Legend - David Gemmell

The Nirnaeth Arnoediad (Battle of Unnumbered Tears) in the Silmarillion, the fourth of five Wars of Beleriand.

The fall of mighty Gondolin, greatest of the Elven realms, also from the Silmarillion.

The battle of Helm's Deep and the Battle of the Pelennor fields in the Lord of the Rings. Also the valiant but hopeless stand of the Army of the West before the Black gates of Mordor.

The Battle of Camlann in Kay's Fionavar Tapestry.

The Wildlings and Giants attacking the Wall in ASOIAF.

The battle between Robert Baratheon's army and Prince Rhaegar's. We only see flashbacks but there's a grand feeling to it all. Also from A song of Ice and Fire.

I would have to go with 'The Battle of Helms Deep', by far one of the most memorable battles.

Dumai's wells definetly
also, I reckon that the battle between the shaido, and rand's followers was damn cool.
Jordan has a whole load of them, and so does Martin. I can't remember all. But these are the two that stuck

The multiple battles in The Dark Glory War happen to tickle my penguin more than any others. But then again, I may be biased due to my already professed love for Mike's writing.:D

The battle of Tal Quorin, Curse of the Mistwraith, Janny Wurts

I'll think on this some more though...

Tough call, this. After all, there're so many battles, both real and fictional that're interesting to read about. Either the Siege of Antioch in 1097 or the Siege of Jerusalem in 1099, during the Prince's Crusade.
