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.

Having recently reviewed the companion volume “Surviving D-Day Tanks in Normandy” also by Craig Moore, I was very pleased to be able to review this guide to surviving WW2 tanks and other armoured vehicles in the Ardennes.

With a map showing the location of these memorials and some 150 images this is a valuable guide to the Battle and the Ardennes which even if you are not a military history buff is a beautiful area of Belgium and Luxembourg to visit. If I have the good fortune to visit both Normandy and the Ardennes again this excellent work and its Normandy companion will be in my rucksack. Highly recommend for the tourist or tour guide.

Martin Willoughby, The Wessex Branch of the Western Front Association

This is a very handy guide to have with you if you are thinking of visiting the area, and having been to the Bastogne Barracks Museum myself, I will encourage you to visit.

There are also some genuine relics of the fighting during the Battle of the Bulge, such as the Tiger II at La Gleize, the Panther Ausf G in Houfflaize and another at Grandmenil. The Sherman in the main square of Bastogne, along with a few others.
