    Default D.A.G explosives factory Poland - April 2015


    Right here we go, the D.A.G WW2 explosives factory complex in Poland.

    This was part of a Subbrit trip to Poland, this site is open to the public, but you are warned about going in to the buildings, you can get lost here very quickly also flooded sections,
    holes in the floors, massive contamination you name it it`s just plain dangerous oh and there is a Polish military base right next to the site with armed guards who have orders
    and permission to shoot on sight anybody with in there fence line.

    The Site was one of the largest explosive production complexes in Europe during WW2, there were 520 building on a site covering 170Km2

    yep you should read that bit again cos it`s not a typo.

    It had a work force of between 20,000 and 30,000 slave labourers for local concentration camps.

    The complex made bulk TNT and Nitrocellulose and maybe RDX (Cyclonite) it also tested and developed new and different type of propellents.

    Right picture time.













    These next two shots are from the very top floor looking at the top of the upper bulk product silos, it`s a foooking long way down.





    Right I`m just about finished but if anybody knows there chemistry, you need a lot of water to make explosives, mostly for cooling the reaction process, now as you may of guessed
    this place has water storage tanks, there are 5 of them and as with the rest of the site they are a bit on the big side.

    So I present the ultimate James bond/Starwars location.







    Right guys and girls that`s it, there are more pictures on my Flicker site and I do mean a lot more so head on over to

    Thanks for the comments guys, it was a pity we were on a time limit as I could of spent many many hours
    Walking around the site, every where you look in the trees there are more building.
    I think to the south of the main site was the slave labour camp, but I'm not 100% on that, the complex also had
    A major rail network running around the whole site.

    I want to go back that's for def.
