    Notes (1)

    • This is one of the few episodes where Italian soldiers are featured along with the Germans. Italian troops comprised a large portion of the Axis forces during the North African campaign, and had been fighting there long before the arrival of their German allies. When the Axis forces surrendered in Tunisia in May, 1943, over 99,000 Italian soldiers were taken prisoner; in all, the North African campaigns had cost Italy the equivalent of 25 divisions.

    • The Old Man: General McClean, called 'The Old Man' several times in the episode, is a reference to Lieutenant General George S. Patton, Jr., who commanded US 2nd Corps in North Africa. Although better known by his later nickname 'Old Blood and Guts', Patton had been known as 'The Old Man' prior to the war.
