The armored tracked vehicle that accompanies the unit is often referred to as a tank in the film; the vehicle is an M36 Gun Motor Carriage, designated a tank destroyer, visibly different from regular tanks due to their open top and thin armor. Tank destroyers would be called as such in US practice. See more »
I mean, how can you do anything worse than this? A bunch of G.I. running around with rifles not knowing what to do, matched by a equally idiotic bunch of German with an idiot as a major who wanted to get important information from an ordinary private. Plus a good looking nun who got panicky at every turn of events, an old nun who had to step on a mine and two kids who ran around in a battlefield like they were in an amusement park! And the tanks! Oh God, you would think they could only shoot at point blank, and miss! I just cannot understand who would invest money into making such kind of crap.
And what is more, the whole time the weather was just perfect and there was not a single American plane in sight. Guess that is why the German can afford to take it easy and hang their clothes out to dry.
Anyway, if you want a love, watch this movie.
