Company of Heroes

Factual error: Company of Heroes is in the timeline of 1944-45. Soldiers are wearing the flag patch on their uniforms which have 50 stars on them, not 48. There were only 48 states in the U.S. back then.

Continuity mistake: The company is stationed in the Ardennes forest, west of Bastogne, yet they suddenly show up in Germany, some 20 miles to the East.


Factual error: The American troops are using British .303 Lee-Enfield rifles: the U.S. Army's standard weapon was the M1 Garand rifle.

Character mistake: There's a corporal sitting against a rock wall smoking a cigarette. Two privates both call him sir. Enlisted soldiers are not called sir.
