M42 in Manhattan – What Was It & Why Did Hitler Want It Destroyed?

M42 at Grand Central Terminal was targeted by Hitler and the Nazis during WWII 

The Daily Mail – The closely guarded sub-basement ten stories underneath the iconic railway station is called M42 but it does not appear on maps or in blueprints and its existence was not even acknowledged publicly until the 1980s. M42 became a target for Hitler after someone who used to work at the terminal informed the Nazis about the rotary power converters that were at work converting alternating current electricity to direct current electricity and powering the rails the Allies were relying on to transport equipment and troops. The rotary converters worked around the clock seven days a week, but they could be stopped by simply pouring a bag of sand into them. Hitler sent four saboteurs to destroy the converters, but they were caught in time.
