Overview
-

There are over 40 surviving World War Two tanks, self-propelled guns, tank destroyers, tank hunters and tank turrets in the Belgium and Luxembourg Ardennes. Not all the tanks on display fought in the December 1944 German offensive, the Battle of the Bulge. Some, such as the Matilda II, were the type of tank that defended France during the Blitzkrieg of May 1940. Others, such as the British Comet tank, were deployed in 1945 during the crossing of the Rhine and the push into Germany. There are also plenty of German Panzers to examine close up, including a Tiger II, three Panther Ausf.G tanks, three Jagdpanzer 38 (G13 Hetzer) tank hunters, a Panzer IV command tank and a StuG III assault tank. Illustrated with over 150 images, and containing detailed descriptions of the tanks and where to find them, this book is an invaluable resource for anyone visiting the Ardennes.
