Into the Maelstrom - S1-E7

Factual error: The USS Arizona Memorial can be seen during the first bombing scene of Pearl Harbor in the dark smoke.

Defiance - S1-E4

Factual error: The batman at the RAF station introduces himself as "Aircraftsman Horton" (which also appears on the credits). While a common mistake made by those outside the RAF, the rank is actually Aircraftman, without an "s".

Cataclysm - S1-E3

Factual error: Churchill tells his aide to fetch "Air Vice-Marshal Dowding". Dowding was actually an Air Chief Marshal, two ranks higher, and wears the correct rank insignia for that rank when he is seen later. As a keen military man, this is not an error Churchill is likely to have made.

The Changing of the Guard - S1-E6

Factual error: As Pug and Byron are readying themselves for dinner at the White House, they are discussing the Bismarck. Pug refers to the ship as a "pocket battleship", which it most definitely was not. As a navy captain, Pug should have known the difference between a pocket battleship like the Scheer or Graf Spee, and the real thing.

The Changing of the Guard - S1-E6

Factual error: The Royal Navy lieutenant aboard the American warship is wearing a moustache. Royal Navy personnel must be either clean-shaven or wear a "full set" (beard and moustache). They are not (and never were) permitted to wear a moustache alone.
