!! Tropes:

* BigBad: Major Kessler, a SociopathicSoldier in charge of guarding the treasure.
* BombDisposal: Private Baker's speciality. Unfortunately, he's also TheAlcoholic.
* BossInMooksClothing: Powell is just dressed up like an ordinary soldier but is trained for just this kind of operation and is the most proficient of the group by far in fighting the Germans after they get shot down, as well as throughout the rest of the mission.
* BruiserWithASoftCenter: Max shows this towards the Dutch women.
* CombatMedic: Private Wellings becomes one over the course of the film.
* DefectorFromDecadence: Voller and his men have had it with being used as canon fodder by sadistic senior officers and are trying to grab what they can and RunForTheBorder.
* {{Eagleland}}: Type III. Captain Banks and his men are somewhat boisterous and cause a bit of harm by blundering into things at the end (and Banks can't help but stealing one painting for himself), but are portrayed as fairly dedicated soldiers.
* EnemyMine: The Matchbox soldiers ultimately fall into this with Voller and his companions.
* FriendlySniper: Both Corporal Dieter Max (of the German deserters) and Powell are decent men at heart, loyal to their allies, and good rifle shots.
* HandicappedBadass: Sergeant [=McMillan=] is wounded during the leg early on but doesn't let it slow him down and remains one of their better fighters.
* HoneyTrap: Voller and his companions use a prostittue to capture Snyder, a Nazi official who knows where the bunker with the treasure is (and pretend to kill her in order to frighten him).
* IFightForTheStrongestSide: Snyder will suck up to whoever has him as a prisoner at any given time. For instance, when he sees the American tanks arriving, he quickly throws up his arms and has this to shot out.
--> '''Snyder:''' God bless Uncle Sam!
* ItsPersonal: Voller, the leader of the three deserters, is being driven more by a vendetta against Kessler, the SS Major guarding the loot, then out of a desire for enrichment.
* ItsRainingMen: Operation Matchbox was ''supposed'' to parachute everyone in over the bunker, but instead they were shot down well short of it and the survivors have to trek the rest of the way.
* LaResistance: Dutch freedom fighters Benita and Sasika, who spend part of the movie being guarded by Max, and the rest of it helping Powell and the others.
* KleptomaniacHero: Both Private Ives of Matchbox, and Captain Banks have faint larcenous streaks.
* NaziGold: The plot involves recovering a lot of art, gold and other treasures stolen by the Germans.
* NewMeat: Welling is still somewhat untested in battle and a bit naive.
* RagtagBunchOfMisfits: The core team is made up of an elite SOE officer posing as an enlisted man, a pilot who wouldn't even be with the mission if his plane hadn't been shot down, a wounded SergeantRock, a NewMeat medical orderly, a KleptomaniacHero, a drunken explosives expert.
* SergeantRock: [[=McMillan=], who won't let a little bullet wound slow him down, or diminish his sense of authority.
* ShellshockedVeteran: Baker's general demeanor screams this.
* TheSpook: Corporal Powell is a trained SOE spy, sent in with the regular soldiers.
* VitriolicBestBuds: Voller and Beck disagree about strategies and priorities a fair amount, especially later in the film, but nonetheless stick together and have a TrueCompanions vibe.
