*** Paderborn is not a village but rather a city, and it did have a center of Nazi occultism in a château in its vicinity (in the ''Landkreis'' of Paderborn, more precisely). That château's name was not "Schufstaffel" (which is obviously a name derived from the SS' full name, ''Schutzstaffel) but Wewelsburg.

** Soldiers (or any other combat troops) wearing red armbands with swastikas in combat. Those were mostly used by party members for their administrative duties or by soldiers and paramilitary during parades. Sporting that thing in combat would mean painting a target on one's arm.

*** Several symbols of the Thule Society show up in the game. In short, the Thule Society (''Thule-Gesellschaft'') was a German occultist and racist group founded in Munich right after UsefulNotes/WorldWarI, named after a mythical Northern country and its equally mythical race. The society sponsored and influenced a little workers party that would grow and become the NSDAP (Nazi Party). Several members of the Thule Society became members of the party, although it should be noted UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler himself was ''not'' a Thule Society member as it is often believed. In fact, Hitler moved to sever the party's links to the society, which disbanded in the 1920s, well before he came to power. It is likely that the society still exists in the game, [[HistoricalVillainUpgrade dabbing into supernatural-related activities]].

*** Speaking of Heinrich Himmler, Heinrich I is based on King Henry the Fowler. Himmler believed he was the reincarnation of this king, hence the presence of both in the game.

* AllGermansAreNazis: Zig-Zagged. On the one hand, there are numerous German civilians in the levels, and German resistance fighters are essential allies without which the game cannot be won. On the other hand, this is balanced out by portraying [[spoiler:Heinrich I]] as an evil conqueror, dark warlord, SealedEvilInACan, and BiggerBad who presaged the dark machinations of the Third Reich. In reality, he was [[spoiler:one of the more effective and benevolent Holy Roman Emperors who ended the Magyar invasions of Europe and helped create the modern German nation]]. Also, unlike most other WWII shooters, every German soldier encountered by B.J. is specifically noted to be Waffen-SS, instead of having regular Wehrmacht troops mixed in with them.
