Fascinating Reminders Of War – Abandoned Tanks From All Over The World


What is more fascinating than an enormous instrument of war wasting away in a landscape that has long forgotten the war that occurred there?

These haunting images of tanks from the wars of the 20th century make people wonder what transpired inside them and what happened to the men that left them behind.

Tanks from all wars and decades dot the earth from the far northern reaches of Europe to the warmth of the South Pacific. Some locations are accessible to the public.

The Otterburn Ranges in Northumberland National Park in England is used as a training area for the military but is occasionally open for those who want to see the abandoned tanks that were used. Some of these tanks are only hulls, while a few still have their tire treads.

The tanks at Fort Knox in Kentucky featured in this video are in areas of the Fort open to visitors. Some lie alongside cemeteries, and the public can view them at times when memorial services are being held.

In Laos, tanks rest among the pine trees and an odd assortment of large stone vessels known as the Plain of Jars. Curious tourists who are willing to risk stepping on unexploded mines and bombs from the Vietnam War can hire a guide to take them to the site.
