Factual errors 

The field cap worn by Stauffenberg in North Africa at the beginning of the movie has two metal insignia pinned to the front. Actual caps had cloth sew-on insignia. Also, Stauffenberg wears a neatly knotted tie, but ties were not worn by German troops anywhere in the front lines, especially in the heat of the North African desert.
