The Glory Among Men - S2-E32

New this month Revealing mistake: In several scenes when they show the front of the barrel of the German machine gun you can see the "blank adaptor" inside the barrel. This is inserted to not allow the gas from the cartridge to escape out the barrel but "blow back" the bolt and insert another round.

Anatomy of a Patrol - S2-E11

New this month Character mistake: At the start of the episode when the plane is spotted Sgt Saunders says "P-51." The plane is in fact a P-38 Lightning.

The Duel - S3-E4

Continuity mistake: Season 3, Episode 68, "The Duel". As Sgt. Saunders is trying to board the tank on its back deck, the tank's cannon is pointed rearward. A subsequent shot shows the cannon over the front, then the next the cannon is over the rear again.

The Duel - S3-E4

Audio problem: Season 3, Episode 68, "The Duel". Sometimes the tank's co-axial machine gun is firing, but no gunfire sound is heard.

Losers Cry Deal - S3-E18

Revealing mistake: Season 3, Episode 73, "Losers Cry Deal", a GI in the squad fires a rifle grenade at a German machine gun position in a window of a building. Not only does the rifle grenade miss the mg position, it misses where the pyrotechnic representing the rifle grenade exploding was planted.

The Duel - S3-E4

Revealing mistake: Season 3, Episode 68, "The Duel": The prop wash from the helicopter filming the overhead scenes are evident as everything (dust, twigs, leaves, etc.) is being blown around.

The Duel - S3-E4

Continuity mistake: Season 3, Episode 68, "The Duel": When the truck first blows its tire, it is in a very muddy, watery patch of road. Subsequent scenes show the road is dry except under the truck where the truck driver is trying to jack up the truck to change the blown tire.

The Duel - S3-E4

Continuity mistake: Season 3, Episode 68, "The Duel": Opening shot shows a "German" tank with the commander's cupola on the left side of the turret. As the "German" tank is really an M-41 Walker Bulldog from the Korean/Vietnam era, the cupola should be on the right side of the turret as the majority of American tanks since WWII have that feature. Obviously, the film was flipped.

The Duel - S3-E4

Continuity mistake: The German tank has its main gun traversed to the rear of the tank as Sgt. Saunders is trying to climb aboard. A following shot shows the tank with its main gun pointing forward, then the next shot the gun is facing toward the rear again.

The Duel - S3-E4

Audio problem: Several times the German tank fires its co-ax turret machine gun. There is gunfire flashing, but no machinegun sound.

The Duel - S3-E4

Continuity mistake: The first shot of the German tank shows the tank commander's station on the left side of the turret; later on and for the rest of the episode the TC's station is shown on the right side of the turret. Note: WWII German tanks had the TC station on the left side of the turret while most American tanks during and after WWII had the TC station on the right side of the turret. The tank used in this episode was a Korean/Vietnam War-era American M-41 Walker Bulldog.

The Little Carousel - S3-E8

Continuity mistake: Season 3, "The Little Carousel": Claudine's hair length changes several times throughout the episode.

Ambush - S2-E12

Revealing mistake: When the German soldiers are shot and fall dead into the water, one of them raises his head to take a breath, then goes back to being "dead."

The Walking Wounded - S1-E30

Continuity mistake: After he changes the tire, the truck driver climbs into the cab with Saunders. But in the next shot, Saunders is alone in the truck.

The Good Samaritan - S4-E18

Factual error: As Caje provides cover fire for Sgt. Saunders, Caje's M-1 rifle fires more than the eight shots it holds.

Crossfire - S4-E8

Factual error: As Stevens charges the German machine gun nest, he fires more bullets than his M-1 rifle could hold (the rifle could hold only eight rounds per clip).

Crossfire - S4-E8

Continuity mistake: As Sgt. Saunders and Pvt. Stevens are about to enter the HQ, in the close up shots are several soldiers walking out of the HQ towards them. In the long shot of Saunders and Stevens the soldiers have disappeared.
