Exploding bombs that are thrown have been around for centuries. Both sides of the US Civil War used hand thrown bombs.

Grenades first were made in the revolutionary period. A grenade then was just a five pound ball filled with gunpowder. On the top was a candle wick. They would light the match and throw. OnlyGrenadiers (Gren-a-dEErs) carried them. They would be specially trained at throwing accuracy.

There are three kinds of grenades. Antipersonnel grenades are used against people. There are fragmentation grenades, which break up when they explode and scatter, at high speeds, pieces of metal which injure or kill whoever you used the grenade against. There are also distraction grenades which create a loud noise and bright flash of light to stun the target...while they're stunned, you can rush in and take them into custody. (SWAT teams love distraction grenades.) Smoke grenades produce thick clouds of smoke. There are white smoke grenades used to conceal troop movements, and colored smoke grenades used for signaling. Product-delivery grenades come in two varieties. The first are White Phosphorous (willy-pete), which is an incendiary agent. The other are Tear Gas grenades.

They all have at least two safeties. The pin is one, something like a lever or a sleeve eld down with the grenadier's thumb is the second, and some grenades have a clip to hold down the lever as the third. Oh, I have to tell you this: Soviet-made fragmentation grenades came from the factory with the fuzes separate from the grenade bodies. NATO grenades have the fuze screwed into the body. Each box of 12 grenades came with 13 fuzes; the 13th fuze had a zero-second delay, and you could use it to make tripwire boobytraps.
