The Wehrmacht’s infamous “Hedgehog Legion” is little known outside of historical circles, despite playing a pivotal role in the initial stages of Operation Barbaraossa (the German invasion of the Soviet Union). After contributing significantly to the German victories at Smolensk and Kiev, the Hedgehog Legion was later transferred to the Battle of Stalingrad, where it was eventually worn down and destroyed, vanishing into the pages of history. Yet another footnote in the long, winding history of small animals carrying large guns.
