The Heroes of Telemark

Other mistake: When Knut and Rolf leave Anna in the car on their way to plant the explosives on the ferry, they instruct her to wait no more than 2 hours for them. Once on the ferry, the earliest time seen on the alarm clocks is about 01:10 so we can assume that Knut and Rolf left Anna sometime before 01:00. When they return to the car after the explosives have been planted, you get a brief glimpse of Anna's watch which shows the time as 03:35; a full 2 hours 25 minutes after the 01:10 we saw on the clock yet Anna states that there are 9 minutes left. (01:44:06 - 01:53:57)

Factual error: The daylight air-raid on the Norwegian Heavy Water plant in 1942 was done by Boeing B17G bombers, with the distinctive chin gun turrets. These planes did not come into service until 1944, when they were introduced to counter the head-on attacks by German fighters.
