This is a combination of two actual Soviet army manuals on hand grenades, the first published by the People's Commisariat in 1944 and the second by the Ministry of Defense in 1974. The 1944 manual covers the grenades and Molotov cocktails that were used by the Red Army against the Germans in World War II. The 1974 manual contains descriptions of three grenades in the inventory of the Soviet army at that time, as well as a lengthy section on their tactical deployment. The resulting expanded manual contains technical descriptions of all hand grenades used by the armed forces of the USSR from the mid-1930s to the mid-1980s. For academic study only
