World War II Pictures

Underground Rocket

This picture shows an underground V-2 rocket factory at Klein Bodungen, 62 miles west of Halle, Germany. As the war went on and more and more German industry was targeted by Allied bombing missions, building underground factories became more common and practical. According to the photo’s caption, the factory was one of the largest in Germany. The rocket pictured is not complete- it appears to be missing both an engine and a fuel tank.
