Good training film. The G.I. tossing the grenade had perfect form.

My grandpa was in Europe during WWII.  He died coming up on 6 years ago (man, time flies) and I never got many war stories out of him - mostly because I was too young and ignorant to value it.  However, he did tell me ONE.  Which was when he instructed me on the proper way to throw a grenade.  I was about 10 or so.  Still, I remember it like it was yesterday.  Thanks gramps!

What was the bottle the guy threw. At first I thought they were going to call it a molotov cocktail, but they had a more official name for it.


Frangible grenade with FS filler?
