* {{Adorkable}}: Upham, with his clumsiness, intellect, and inexperience, is charming yet klutzy throughout most of the film. [[spoiler:He's less charming after his reluctance to fight allows someone else in the squad to be killed.]]

* SinktheLifeboats: After the Normandy Landing two German soldiers put their hands up and try to surrender, only to get gunned down by American Soldiers (made even more horrifying once you know that they're Czech Conscripts. Later, when they capture Steamboat Willie, Miller and Upham are the only ones who don't want to murder him in cold blood. Steamboat Willie kills Miller at Ramelle, suggesting that not killing the POW was a mistake. After the battle, Upham shoots a surrendering and unarmed Steamboat Willie - while the movie treats it as a good thing, in real life that would make Upham a war criminal.
