Even though the Nazis were in retreat these weapons could have turned their defeat into victory. The film includes references to Hannah Reich, who in real life was a German test pilot. Written by

As the heroes cross into Germany from occupied Holland, the tri-colored German flag is on prominent display at the border post. This flag was ditched by the Nazis in 1933 and didn't come back into use until the late 1940s. See more »
This is truly a remarkable film, a thinking person's war movie. Characters never seem to end up doing what you expect them to do (or end up having done to them what you'd expect of major stars). It keeps you on the edge until the spectacular ending which is as full of action as the rest of the film is full of intrigue. Everyone from the actors to the technicians are at their best in this epic. A good double-bill would be Guns of Navarone, though frankly, this is the more believable film.
