In the movie the Danish Sgt. Rasmussen lead the mine clearing operation. In real life these missions were controlled by the British forces, but with German Officers in command of each team.
It is believed that more than 2,000 German soldiers were forced to remove mines, and nearly half of them lost their lives or limbs.
The film was shot at historically authentic locations, including in Oksbøllejren and areas in Varde.
