Originally, the film ended after the prison sequence. Test audiences felt the ending was too bleak, so the filmmakers went back six months later and filmed the additional 'home' scene that caps the film.

Ugly Germans, cute Brits, and a female abortion is equal to trench warfare. Self-righteous, moralizing garbage. There is no place for subtleness, complexity when all is black and white in a fanatic's mind. The worst thing here about abortion: it cuts down the number of eligible conscripts.I write this revue in a wane hope that it just might slow down "the march of Christian Soldiers" towards the next world war.Here's a suggestion: on par with an "Oscar" let's have a "Golden Goebbels" award for justifying war, making it acceptable, palatable and selling it all to minors as an exciting way to do "the wright thing". Spielberg's "Saving Private Ryan" and "War Horse" come to mind. We all know that "war is a racket" and this film it's newest addition.
