* EvenEvilHasStandards: Hessler is a bloodthirsty warrior who is willing to toss his troops at the allies just to buy Nazi Germany a few extra months of existence but he refuses to cheat on his wife when the commanding general sends him a NS-Frauenschaft comfort woman on the night before the attack.

* AbortedArc: Hessler is told that because of shortages of resources he has 50 hours to reach the River Meuse, and the German command bunker has a special 50 hour clock. When the attack starts we see the clock start ticking, but after that we hear very little about the deadline and never see the clock again. Hessler is often told that he needs to keep moving, but that's a bit different from an inexorably ticking clock.

Added DiffLines:
* ElitesAreMoreGlamorous: The German tanks are depicted as all being the famous Tiger. Tigers were very rare in the real battle - they were too wide for the narrow roads and too heavy for the bridges. Panzer [=IVs=] were much more common.
