Trivia

There is a continuity error in the movie, during the halftrack scene, Toynbe is seen having an M1 Garand, however, during the preparation for the Battle of Ramelle, he is seen wielding an M1 Carbine, even when he is killed, he is wielding an M1 Carbine, as it was noticeable by its thin barrel.
