    • Major Gehlson (interrogating Sgt. Troy): Don't be a fool. So far, this has only been a spectator sport for you. The real fun is just about to begin. For your own good, talk! Sgt. Troy: Yeah. Heil Hitler.

    Notes (1)

    • The actual invasion of Sicily (Operation Husky) occurred on July 9, 1943, almost two months after the Germans surrendered in Tunisia. The battle for Sicily, involving many troops who had fought in the North African campaign, resulted in an Allied victory on August 17, 1943.

    Trivia (1)

    • The scene of The Rat Patrol escaping near the end of this episode is re-edited footage from the earlier "Kill or Be Killed" episode. Sgt. Moffitt's face is noticeably swollen in the reused footage, but in this episode, it was actually Sgt. Troy who was beaten by his German interrogators, and not Sgt. Moffitt.

    Allusions (1)

    • Hermann Goering: Goering (Hermann Wilhelm Göring, 1893-1946), referred to several times in this episode, was the Nazi Reichsmarshall (second in command of the Third Reich) and Commander in Chief of the Luftwaffe (German air force).
