Corrected entry: In the scene where Kenneth More first enters the operations room he complains about a naval rating's uniform while his own jacket is not properly buttoned up.

Correction: So? During my 'nasho' - National Service - in the Navy officers would pull this kind of stunt all the time. Just telling us who was in charge, as they did (and, no doubt, still do). Note from Submission Checker: I, too, have heard of this, just yesterday 10/28/05, in the Army National Guard.

Mistakes

Here's a big historical mistake. The character of German Admiral L├╝tjens is depicted overall in this film as a wild-eyed Nazi fanatic. In real life, he was distinctly anti-Nazi, vehemently protested the anti-Semitic actions of Hitler's regime, and was himself subject to intense Nazi scrutiny as he was a quarter Jewish and his wife was half Jewish. He was one of many German naval officers who fought only for their country, not Hitler.
