At the far end of the IWM Duxford site, the Land Warfare exhibition features scores of artillery pieces, tanks, trucks and other military vehicles to tell the story of mechanisation of warfare.
Wander through themed landscapes to discover how fighting on the land has changed from the First World War through to modern conflicts.
Explore Field Marshal ‘Monty’ Montgomery's three command caravans, used during the Second World War in North West Europe.
These mobile headquarters allowed Montgomery to be close to the frontline and became his office, bedroom and map room during conflict.
The Forgotten War
In 1942, the Japanese Army invaded Burma, many of the men who fought in the Far East consider themselves to have been part of a 'forgotten army'.
Allied troops endured over three years of brutal fighting, often in extreme terrain and menaced by severe weather and the threat of disease. Fighting in the jungle placed different requirements on weaponry and equipment.
