* The Iron Cross, being the most iconic Prussian and German military decoration, is frequently used in films and other works of fiction to make the chest of an German officer appear less empty. What many creators of such works are not aware of is that the Iron Cross was only instituted for the duration of four major wars, to wit the [[UsefulNotes/NapoleonicWars Wars of Liberation]] (1813-1815), the [[UsefulNotes/FrancoPrussianWar Franco-German War]] (1870-1871), UsefulNotes/WorldWarI (1914-1918) and UsefulNotes/WorldWarTwo (1939-1945), and could not be awarded for service in any of the intervening wars and armed conflicts.[[note]] Officially, the Iron Crosses of 1813, 1870, 1914 and 1939 were considered separate decorations, and they differed in a number of details, especially the last one; the Nazis introduced the entirely new Knight's Cross with its many gradations.[[/note]] When for instance in the British TV series ''Edward VII'' UsefulNotes/OttoVonBismarck is shown wearing an Iron Cross in the 1860s, this is incorrect as Bismarck was too young to have served in the Wars of Liberation and the episodes were set before 1870. Similarly, as ''Film/ThoseMagnificentMenInTheirFlyingMachines'' is set in 1913, Captain Rumpelstoss (Karl Michael Vogler) is obviously too young to have served and been awarded an Iron Cross in the Franco-German War. Another occasional mistake is showing junior and field officers wearing Iron Crosses around their neck pre-1939; up until then the only grade of the Iron Cross to be worn around the neck was the Grand Cross, which was reserved to commanding generals[[note]] i. e. commanding at least an army corps [[/note]] for winning a battle or capturing or defending an important fortress.

** In ''Film/MarsAttacks'', Richie and his grandmother are given the Congressional Medal of Honor by ThePresidentsDaughter, in honor of their role in stopping the Martians. The President's daughter is referred to as the only surviving member of the Government (she's not -- she didn't hold any office, and being a member of the family of an officeholder doesn't make you part of the government), but it's overlooked that the medal is only awarded to military personnel, not to civilians.
