English: Shrapnel shells were a type of anti-personnel artillery shell of the 1800s and early 1900s which fired balls (bullets) forward out of the shell case near the end of its trajectory. Last used in World War I, and not to be confused with more modern high-explosive shells, which are based on a totally different principle and burst into fragments and splinters in all directions.
