The Reich Underground
During World War Two, the Third Reich launched a massive engineering project in an effort to protect its armaments industry, government officials and material assets. The project was one of the most extensive and ambitious in history and raises many disturbing questions as to the consequences it could have had if the war had ended just a few months later.
The Nazi vision was a labyrinth of concrete bombproof tunnels and factories all over Germany, France and Poland. By 1944, 20% of Germany's armaments were being produced in factories deep underground and additional sites were still under construction right up until the last few days of the war.
There were plans to move vital control centres underground, such as the Luftwaffe headquarters being built in Austria. As the Allies made their way through Nazi-occupied Europe, they discovered miles of underground tunnels and bunkers. In some places tools and equipment were found, as if the workforce had just left for a break - labourers worked round-the-clock on the Fuhrer's subterranean cities.
