Dragons vs. Giants

In my campaign, I'm looking to have the PCs involved in a climactic battle between a society of Dragons and a race of Giants (think Storm Giant, etc). The Giants have gotten their hands on a super powerful artifact that is what lets them actually face off against the Dragons on somewhat equal terms. The plan is that the PCs will be headed into the battle (probably on the side of the Dragons), and will be able to face off against the Giant leader because they're the PCs, etc.

What I'm having trouble figuring out is how exactly an army of Giants would fight against an army of Dragons. Do the Giants hang on the ground and throw huge boulders as the Dragons try to come within breath-weapon range? Do the Giants ride into battle on the backs of Rocs (or other oversized birds)? Do the Giants have some kind of storm-based magic that lets them fly around for mid-air battles? Some combination of the above?

Basically does anyone have any ideas for cool/sensible strategies for a group of Giants to successfully fight against a group of Dragons?

Thanks!
