* 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=] and Panthers were much more common.

* CaliforniaDoubling: The whole film is shot in Spain. This is a particularly unfortunate case of California Doubling as Spain looks absolutely nothing like the Ardennes Forest of Belgium.

* HighClassCallGirl: General Kohler sends a ridiculously attractive "courtesan first class" to Col. Hessler's room. Hessler, being a no-nonsense hardass, sends the call girl on her way. In point of fact, the point when he sends her packing is the moment she mentions his wife confirming his suspicion she knew full well that he was married and is implying that he has a reputation for cheating in his wife, which he ''very much doesn't and won't do.''
