Corporal Freebairn refers to his sniper rifle as "Fanny".
Although Richard Davalos' character is listed as Lt. Wansee in the episode credits, he wears the hauptsturmführer rank on his uniform, which is the SS equivalent of captain. Dietrich also correctly addresses him as both Captain and Hauptsturmführer.
The quote 'spread alarm and despondency' was becoming a popular expression during the war according to Lt. Col. Vladimir Peniakoff's A Private Army, a book about his working behind enemy lines with the Long Range Desert Group. He got a wireless message containing that exact phrase one night while awaiting orders for a mission.
Near this episode's end, as the Rat Patrol's jeeps are speeding away from the village, a vehicle can be seen traveling on a highway in the far distance. Another moving vehicle is also visible as Capt. Dietrich walks towards the mother and daughter.
The stuntwoman really earns her pay in the scene where Michele jumps out of the moving truck--the rear wheels of the truck run over her right leg.
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.
The leg cast that Gary Raymond is wearing in this episode is real. He was still recovering from a broken ankle suffered during an accident where a jeep he was riding in overturned during filming. Also injured in the accident were costars Chris George and Justin Tarr.
When Hauptmann Dietrich drives off in the Kubelwagen in the last scene, the right front tire is very flat!
Director John Peyser has a cameo role as the driver of one of the trucks carrying the released POWs. He speaks briefly to Sgt. Troy, saying: "Right. Hey, thanks, Sarge!"
The cameraman's shadow can be seen when Sgt. Troy collapses onto the sand.
When Sgt. Troy first collapses in the desert, the shadow of the camera can be seen.
The song heard playing at the start of this episode is "Lili Marlene", written in 1915 by German Hans Leip, who combined the names of two friends, and was later set to music by Norbert Schultze in 1938. Even though Joseph Goebbels, the Nazi's propaganda minister, opposed it, the song gained in popularity so much that the German forces radio broadcasted it every evening at 9:55 throughout Europe and the Mediterranean. It quickly became a favorite of both the Allied and German soldiers.
Although unmentioned by name in the episode, the member of the Rat Patrol that is killed in the opening scene is listed as Cotter on the end credits.
