Factual error: During the plane ride into France, the Paratroopers are holding/carrying their weapons by their sides. In reality, their weapons (M1 Garands, B.A.R.s, etc.) would be carried in special "bags" strapped to their parachute harness. This not only protected their weapons, but also secured them to their person.Matdan97
Factual error: During the plane, pre-drop scenes, the paratroopers are wearing their Airborne chinstraps. Which is a chin cup, used in addition to the stand M1 Helmet chinstrap to keep the helmet secure during jumps. The one in the film is made of cotton, canvas; most during World War II would be made of leather. The cotton ones are either late war or perhaps post-war issue.Matdan97
Other mistake: When Boyce and Ford are watching Chloe and the Nazi officer through the floorboards, the former are in the attic, the latter downstairs in the living room. Surely looking through the attic floorboards would only allow a view into one of the bedrooms. How then do Boyce and Ford manage to see down into the living room?
