A fascinating story of a tennis-court-size plant which was constructed 8 meters below the surface for manufacturing 9mm bullets, shielded by an ordinary collective kibbutz above. Working in secret, its 45 employees produced over 3 million bullets for the Sten submachine gun, the principal weapon of the Jewish combatants in the 1948 War of Independence.
