Trivia

Many of the establishing shots involving Germany, such as the Junkers Ju-52s flying and landing or troops encircling a house, were originally used in the 2009 film "Valkyrie." See more »

Goofs

The Rheinland was not a territory "taken from Germany" after World War I, nor was it "guarded by heavily armed British and French soldiers" when Hitler decided to remilitarize it in 1936. Neither is it appropriate to describe the events of March 7, 1936 as an "invasion."

The Rheinland remained German territory (definitively after the referendum of January 1935 resulted in more than 90% support for remaining a part of Germany): the Treaty of Versailles (and the subsequent Locarno Pact) simply prohibited Germany from building or maintaining any fortifications, or quartering any troops on the left bank of the River Rhein, or in a zone 50 kilometers east of the river. The last British troops stationed in the Rheinland left in late 1929, and the last French troops stationed there left in June 1930--years before Hitler's decision to send troops (a token force of 19 battalions of infantry and a handful of airplanes--only three battalions of which actually crossed to the west bank of the river) into the demilitarized zone.
