Goofs

The helmet of the Lieutenant (played by Ken Lynch) has a vertical white stripe on the back. In 1943, the US Army did not use the white stripes during the North Africa Campaign (vertical for officers, horizontal for NCO's). These were not added to the combat helmets until just before D-Day in 1944. See more »

What theater of war is the opening, really? While paratroops were used in North Africa they sure didn't chute into Southern California terrain
