Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: The film is a satirical representation of the events, not a historical documentary. Zhukov isn't from northern England, the committee did not comically carry Stalin around his dacha and Melenkov never told anyone to kiss his "Russian ass."

Churchill picture

Factual error: The American flag displayed when Churchill arrives at the big house to meet Eisenhower has a modern day configuration of 50 stars, not 48 as it was at the time.
