jumping to German occupied France in broad daylight wearing leather shoes? a high ranking major was a German spy and mole in the British army? most of the fighting scenes were either one-sided or just complete messy arrangements. the french resistant hid in a big house with tunnels without an escape arrangement? and they tried to run away when they were surrounded by the German army, they ran into a mine field right next to their secret hideout, are you kidding me? when they went to the pre-arranged rendezvous in the forest at night, why it's so bright? what and where was the bright light coming from? when the German army showed up at night and started the shooting, sometimes it's pitch black but most of the time, the illumination was just so bright, sometimes it's on the left, sometimes it came from the right, and sometimes it's right behind them in the center. then a short fling with a french woman and love making right away? yeah, right, could you just give me another generous break again? 5 or 6 guys of the so-called allies almost eliminated several hundreds of gemans with tanks and plenty of fire power with machine guns....wow, this is indeed a miraculous movie. but since the allies had won the wwii, the winner could do whatever they like and made the loser German force like morons. a typical self-indulgent masturbation that only served to the winning side. the Germans, the japs, the Chinese nationalist party, they were all morons, and the winning parties could rewrite their own histories whatever they preferred.
