Suggested correction: The Stukas are dropping SD-2 canister bombs, a particularly nasty anti-personnel weapon. Upon release from the aircraft the bomb divided into the bomblets you see here.

Continuity mistake: In the scene at the end of the film featuring a Spitfire that has ran out of fuel, we see the plane with the propeller stopped but in the next shot, it's slowly rotating. The next shot shows it stopped again but in the next shot, it's (once again) slowly rotating.

Suggested correction: The prop would stop but would possibly move due to the forward motion of the aircraft and air flow.

Continuity mistake: When the two British soldiers are exchanging a bottle of wine, it's full in one shot but when given to the other soldier it's suddenly less so.

Continuity mistake: As the lone Spitfire trails and attacks the German bomber, we see smoke trailing from the right bomber engine. In the next scene, no smoke; the next scene the Spitfire continues the attack, and the smoke starts anew.

In reality, Adolf Hitler ordered his commanders and troops to stand down and allow Allied forces to escape at Dunkirk, because Hitler admired the British as "Aryan brothers," whom he expected to eventually join the Third Reich.
