Many of the military courtroom guards are members of the U.S. First Infantry Division, as shown by their shoulder patches. They wear solid red shoulder cords (called fourrageres), which are apparently supposed to represent the French Croix-de-Guerre award won by the division during World War II. However, the red fourragere represent the Légion d'honneur, the 1st and 2nd US divisions were awarded the gold Fourragère aux couleurs du ruban de la médaille militaire. See more »
This is a strange subject for a modern TV series designed to entice an audience to whom World War II is as distant as the Pelopenesian Wars. Yet this is a tough, well produced, historically accurate and thoroughly compelling film. Brian Cox steals the show with a masterful recreation of Hermann Goering as a beguiling rogue. And the production techniques excel, for example the sound track as silent film of the concentration camps is shown to the trial. It puts the horror in context without exploiting it or sensationalizing it. A brilliant piece of historical film making.
