German Stick Grenade- WW II (Stock Footage)

The Model 24 Stielhandgranate (German, “stalk hand grenade”) was the standard hand grenade of the German Army from World War I until the end of World War II. The very distinctive appearance led to its being called a “stick grenade”, or a “potato masher” in British Army slang, and is today one of the most easily recognized infantry weapons of the 20th century.
