Using a Google search of "battle of [battle name]" in inverted commas, these are the results:

"battle of the somme" 206,000
"battle of el alamein" 278,000
"battle of hastings" 370,000
"battle of trafalgar" 441,000
"battle of gettysburg" 591,000
"battle of waterloo" 609,000
"battle of cannae" 804,000

I also tried "battle of the bulge", but because it could be skewed by Weight Watchers, I specified it also need the word 'ardennes'!):
"battle of the bulge" +ardennes 883,000
