    Grenadiers carried grenades

    (cartoon like bombs) to assault the enemy lines when they first appeared on the battlefield. As musket technology progressed

    the use of grenades was obsolete. But the name of grenadiers prevailed. In the 1700s

    the name grenadiers refers to an elite group of soldiers that does the job of assulting and

    breaking enemy lines. This name was kept all the way to WWII
