    Granatwiese? Was bedeutet....

    Recommended Posts

    I came across the word "Granatwiese" in a regimental history, but really don't have a good understanding of what it means.  I realize that it has something to do with artillery and/or shells and/or grenades because the word appears in parentheses after the word "Geschütze".  I'm pretty sure it's not a "garnet meadow".  (Please forgive that weak attempt at humor).  Any and all help is greatly appreciated as always.  Thank you!

    there are different explanations.


    You can find "Granatwiese" as a street name in Germany, may be with a historical base.


    And you can find "Granatwiese" in WW I in France in different places, as German name for fields with many shell craters.


    The picture is out of a book: Heinrich Magnus Ivens »Meine liebe kleine Frau«
