About has been created by Trevor Larkum of Armour Archive to provide information on preserved tanks around the world. It was initially built using the content from existing Armour Archive publications, including Preserved German Tanks 1: A7V to Panzer IV, Preserved German Tanks 2: Panzer V Panther to Leopard 2, Preserved Tanks in France, Preserved Tanks in Russia, and so on (these publications are available as paperback books from Armour Archive).

The first books to be put online were Preserved German Tanks Volumes 1 and 2 (see the links at the top). Then the first chapters of Preserved Tanks in Russia (covering the Kubinka and Moscow collections) and Preserved Tanks in France (covering Normandy and the Saumur armour museum) were added.

The site went online 8 June 2008. Since then a large number of tanks and collections have been added covering many countries of the world, including UK, USA, Canada, Netherlands, Brazil, Italy, and so on. This work is planned to continue until all preserved tanks (i.e. those no longer in military service) have been recorded.

Preserved Tanks In France   
As I haven't blogged for a while it may look like things have gone quiet here - but the opposite is true. With the 65th anniversary of D-Day on the horizon, I have spent the last few months producing a Third Edition of Preserved Tanks In France. It has been quite a challenge, and has grown in size from the original 72 pages to a very substantial 154 pages. The aim has simply been to produce the best and most complete guide for visitors touring the D-Day battlefields, and further afield.

Preserved Tanks In France

It is now available to buy from here:

Armour Archive Storefront

That's as much hard sell as I'm going to do here. Go to that link for more information, or visit ArmourArchive. As ever, everything on remains free, and the content of the new Third Edition of PTIF will be put online here as soon as I'm able. The first chapter, covering tanks on display around Normandy, is already taking shape - just look for a Normandy link.
