    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    So, a glasmine is a glass pot (undetectable).

    Panzerschreck, Panzerfaust, mines etc.

    Different colors.

    Different parts of a "Glasmine".

    HOW SHE DOES WORK.

    1) scew the détonator through the metal disc in the explosives.

    2) position the explosive in his ribs.

    3) close the mine with the thin glass disc.

    Panzerschreck, Panzerfaust, mines etc.

    4) cover the thin glas with the heavy glass, the glasmine is ready to operate.

    Il you walk on the heavy glass disc, he broke the thin glass, fall on the detonator and BOOM.

    Hi,

    I have forget; all of the parts of the glasmine are déact (detonator) or fake (explosive).

    Hi "Scout"

    In my country, after the war, the glass pots served as watering place for the chiken in the farms.

    And like Topfminen and so on , it was the mine war.
    During my army in Colmar, I met minesweepers. They had maps from minefields!
    In 1945, they made piles of Topfminen and boum!

    Most excellent pics, explanation of the mine workings, thanks.

    I assume the heavy glass piece was to insure, that the person stepping on it broke the thin plate or what?
