The Battle is a 1934 Franco-British co-production English language drama film directed by Nicolas Farkas and Viktor Tourjansky, and starring Charles Boyer, Merle Oberon and John Loder. It was adapted from a novel by Claude Farrère. In 1904 during the Russo-Japanese War, a Japanese naval officer gets his wife to seduce a British attaché in order to gain secrets from him. Things begin to go wrong when she instead falls in love with him.

A French-language version La bataille was also released with many of the same cast members, but with Oberon's part played by the French actress Annabella. It was also known by the alternative title Thunder in the East.
