Why We Fight - S1-E9

Factual error: Private Webster is holding the baker and pointing his 45 caliber pistol on the baker's throat. A 3-dot (white) sight system can be seen on his pistol. The 3-dot sight system appeared either in the late 1970's or early 1980's.

Mistakes

He later served in Korea and was promoted to master sergeant as well as receiving the paratrooper of the year award. Blithe died in 1967 while on active duty in Germany.

Trivia

In the scene where the Red Devils toast the 101st Airborne, when the camera shows the assembled soldiers you'll see Tom Hanks as one of the Red Devils in a beret at the back left (5 or 6 men in) with his right hand on his hip. His head moves forwards to become obscured behind another soldier.
