This thesis examines the topic of the underground factories that Germany constructed during the Second World War. These factories were primarily built as a response to the Allied bombing campaign that was increasing in intensity from 1943 onwards and the entire programme stretched across much of Europe. Encompassing at least nine occupied countries, as well as Germany itself, the programme was composed of hundreds of factories ranging from gigantic tunnel-systems and structures to small scale facilities in basements and cellars. It is the intention of this dissertation to provide an in-depth overview of the complete underground programme, something that has not previously been done at an academic level.
