The Glory Among Men - S2-E32

Revealing mistake: In several scenes when they show the front of the barrel of the German machine gun you can see the "blank adaptor" inside the barrel. This is inserted to not allow the gas from the cartridge to escape out the barrel but "blow back" the bolt and insert another round.
