Continuity 

When Pauline is standing in front of her newly destroyed house, in the close up shots her hair is flat, but in the distant shots it's noticeably more full.

Factual errors 

The ammo-round would not have fired normally while just being gripped in the jaws of a vise; without the round's being contained in a gun-chamber, the powder would have exploded the brass casing.

Dawn would have needed to lie down to give birth to the baby; she could not just have it standing up.

Miscellaneous 

The man is incorrect when he tells the boy that they (the Nazis) will be bombing France with Big Bertha which has a range of 25 miles. Big Bertha was a nickname given to a gun the Germans constructed in the first World War. It was made by welding 3 gun barrels together which gave it a range of 75 miles.

Revealing mistakes 

The string quartet of Grace, Faith, Hope and Charity are clearly not actually playing the piece of classical music near the end of the film. Also the Mozart serenade in G K.525 (Eine kleine Nachtmusik) that they are playing is scored for five instruments, not four.

Not only is the string quartet not actually playing the music, but the Mozart serenade in G K.525 (Eine kleine Nachtmusik) is scored for five instruments, not four.
