to:

* TranslationConvention: Completely subverted, which helped greatly with the show's authenticity and realism: the Germans spoke German, the French spoke French, and all without subtitles; any translation that may had gone on was if the squad happened to have a linguist who could hear the enemy's secrets, and relay the information back to the others.
