Narnia Recap: Aslan has joined the battle against the White Witch.
The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe, Chapter 17: The Hunting of the White Stag
THE BATTLE WAS ALL OVER A FEW MINUTES after their arrival. [...]
"It was all Edmund's doing, Aslan," Peter was saying. "We'd have been beaten if it hadn't been for him. The Witch was turning our troops into stone right and left. But nothing would stop him. He fought his way through three ogres to where she was just turning one of your leopards into a statue. And when he reached her he had sense to bring his sword smashing down on her wand instead of trying to go for her directly and simply getting made a statue himself for his pains. That was the mistake all the rest were making. Once her wand was broken we began to have some chance -- if we hadn't lost so many already. He was terribly wounded. We must go and see him."
