well, the US army 2nd ranger battalion was a battalion that scaled the cliffs of Pointe Du Hoc. There was an artillery piece that could fire up to 3 miles and had both Utah and Omaha beach in its sight. These were both of the beaches US was landing on. On Pointe Du Hoc, the US 2nd Ranger Battalion tossed a grenade into the place where the artillery piece was and "kaboom" it exploded! This was a major point in the US's plan of landing on the 2 beaches. A simple hand grenade WILL NOT destroy a gun emplacement, despite what Hollywood would have you believe. It takes about 10 pounds of dynamite to destroy a gun like that, and you have to place it directly IN the breech at the rear of the piece to destroy the firing mechanism properly. Well, one grenade COULD kill or disable the entire gun crew of 4 or 5 men in the emplacement. No one said they destroyed the artillery piece. Also, secondary explosions could have followed as there was a lot of ammunition there. Don't know about the ammunition for this gun, but many of the largest naval guns are loaded with cloth bags of powder. These would probably not explode, but there would have been one hell of a fire.
