These World War II Tank & Vehicle Wrecks in Libya Will Amaze You! (Watch)

War in the desert has always been vastly different than the battles in the rest of the European theater. Having massive amounts of open space which often isn’t habitable means nobody is in a hurry to clear away war wrecks, since they are rarely in anybody’s way. More that 70 years later, WWII wrecks can still be found in the desert, most of them on the same location they were left by their crew all those decades earlier.

This video takes us on a trip through a variety of wrecked war vehicles. Some are long forgotten in remote places, while others are simply abandoned in the middle of a settlement. Images of Sherman tanks, Stuart tanks, tank turrets, Armored cars and Long Range Desert Group vehicles are shown along with photos and videos of what they looked like while in action.

It makes for a poignant reminder of a war frozen in time and, at only 6 minutes, this video is well worth watching!
