Plot hole: How did goofy Joey know where his wooden flute landed in the muddy puddle? One of his fellow prisoners threw it there when the commandant and his officers weren't looking.

Suggested correction: Joey acted more like a silent observer. As such, he would have watched Animal toss the piccolo into the water, splashing on Von Scherbach's boots.

Mistakes

When Lt. Dunbar is being interrogated in the Commandant's office you can see a map on the far wall. It is a map of Germany dictated by the Treaty of Versailles which ended World War I because it shows E. Prussia separated from Germany and does not include the annexation of Austria and Czechoslovakia. These annexations were completed before the start of World War II in '39 and certainly before late '44, early '45 when the film took place. It is highly unlikely any German officer would have this map displayed not only because it's inaccurate but because it displayed the territorial losses brought on by the humiliating defeat of World War I.
