The hand grenade is a vital element of modern close-quarter warfare, used by armies, irregular forces, and now even law-enforcement teams all over the world. Portable and lethally efficient, the hand grenade allows the user to inflict damage on his opponent within throwing range without leaving cover. It made its debut as a mass-produced weapon in World War I, and examples such as the infamous German a€œstick grenadea€ and the US Mk II a€œpineapplea€ became globally recognized weapons when used in the world wars. In this engaging study, Gordon Rottman expertly charts the origins, development, and combat use of the military hand grenade. Employing full-color illustrations and photographs of hand grenades in use, this book also explores the lasting legacy of these small but deadly weapons, showing how they transformed infantry tactics and shaped close-combat doctrine worldwide up to the present day.SELECT.
