Stalingrad

Other mistake: During the first fight scene just before you see Gege accidentally shoot his friend, Fritz goes off with another German to look for Russians. However, as he sets off you can see that he has no bullets in his gun at all! There is no magazine attached.

Factual error: The Germans encounter three enemy tanks, all Russian T-34/85 models that were introduced in mid-1944. Additionally, they shoot at the tanks with an anti-tank gun which is painted sand colour. This colour was not introduced until Feb 1943.

Trivia: In the English subtitles, the German troops are addressed as "Storm Troopers." The correct title of these men were "Sturmpionieren" or "Assault Engineers", who were highly trained in street fighting using flamethrowers, explosives, and other specialized equipment.

Trivia: The scene where the Soviet tank fires its main cannon, cutting a German soldier in half, was inspired by an actual incident in William Craig's book about the battle of Stalingrad, "Enemy at the Gates."
