A flamethrower is a type of weapon or device used to project a stream of fire instead of a solid projectile. Flamethrowers usually work on fuel or gas and can reach distances of around 40-50 feet.
Even though similar weapons such as Greek fire had been used since ancient times, the modern flamethrower has only been around since about 1900. The weapon was used quite extensively in the First and even more so in the Second World War.
