Continuity mistake: In the beginning of the film when Wardaddy jumps the German officer riding the horse, he is holding him down with his left hand while stabbing him in the gut with his right hand. When the shot changes at the final thrust, he is holding the knife with both hands as he twists the knife to pull it out of his left eye socket. (00:03:15)

Continuity mistake: We see Sgt Davis standing next to Wardaddy getting the brief on the new mission. In one shot he has his arm raised with a mug in his hand. When the shot changes, his arm is now lowered. (00:18:30)

Continuity mistake: Wardaddy uses a Sturmgewehr 44 throughout the movie. In the first shot where he shoots the teenage German soldier, the Sturmgewehr 44 is missing the front sight hood. The hood appears throughout the movie afterwards. (00:24:05)

Continuity mistake: When Parker is engulfed in flames, he pulls out his handgun and shoots through the helmet in his right temple. In the next shot, there is neither a bullet hole nor blood stain on his helmet. (00:24:25)

Continuity mistake: Just as the tank column breaks through the hedgerow to rescue the troops, Wardaddy either has his goggles over his eyes or on his helmet depending on the shot. (00:29:10)

Factual error: In the hedgerow battle, the Fury tank platoon face off with a German MG 42 machine gun and two 7.5 cm Pak 40 anti-tank gun. Each of these guns opens fire only after the previous one gets knocked out. In a real combat situation, all of the guns would open fire at the same time and establish a cross fire, effectively suppressing the ground troops and tanks from advancing. (00:31:35 - 00:33:30)

Suggested correction: By the time the movie takes place (mid to late April 1945) the German army was mostly inexperienced troops with an incredibly small nucleus of veterans. Though the tactical use of weapon systems you mention is correct, I doubt most of the formations still putting up a fight in Germany proper would have had the knowledge/ability to carry it out.

With low experience I would expect the soldiers to open fire too soon and with no communication between guns to create the "talking gun" effect. The fact that the two guns opened fire separate of each other makes very little tactical sense regardless of skill or experience.

With no experience it is more likely they would open fire as the 1st guns fires. With all 3 stations opening fire they would have had more chance to succeed.

Continuity mistake: Wardaddy gives the order to run over the enemy with the tank. We see one German with his right up raised in the rear view of him in the foxhole. In the front shot of him however his arm is lowered. (00:33:10)

Continuity mistake: Wardaddy gives Norman the ultimatum of "him or you." When he does, he's pointing his revolver at Norman. Camera changes and he's no longer pointing at Norm. (00:38:30)

Continuity mistake: Just after Norman has been made to shoot the German, he lies on the floor with his face buried in his arms. Camera cuts and his position has changed and you can now see his face. (00:39:20)

Character mistake: On the way approaching town the camera pans to a woman's hanged body with a sign written in German around her neck. One of the crew asked Wardaddy what it said, to which he answered something like "It reads 'I am a coward who refused to fight for the German people'." That sign actually translates to "I wanted my children not to go fight" or Anglicized for better effect, "I refused to let my children to go to war." Interestingly, once into town, there appears the corpse of a hanged man with a sign written in German that does translate to what Wardaddy said of the first sign. (00:43:00)

Factual error: When Fury enters a village and faces a field gun attack, Sgt. Collier orders through the tank radio "Throw some Willie Pete in that ground floor." While white phosphorus has been used for a century, Willie Pete as a slang term for it only dates from the Vietnam War. (00:48:05)

Continuity mistake: When the SS officer is killed for hanging children, his papers land by his head. When the shot changes, his papers are now by his feet. (00:48:30)

Continuity mistake: Wardaddy raises his cigarette lighter to his cigarette twice while he speaks to Norman after the town has been taken. (00:51:30)

Other mistake: It's established that Emma doesn't understand English as shown by Norman having to mime when talking in the bedroom. However just before this, Wardaddy calls her a nice clean girl and Norm should take her in the bedroom, or he would. Emma then walks towards the bedroom and pulls Norman after her. Wardaddy doesn't point to the door or motion in anyway to give away what he said. So how did Emma know to go to the bedroom? (00:57:45)

Continuity mistake: As Sgt. Collier shaves, Irma is pouring coffee in the kitchen by the sink, facing Collier. The next shot she is standing in front of the stove. (00:58:30)

Scott215

Factual error: One scene has Sgt. Collier having a conversation with Norman as they are riding on the turret of "Fury" without their tank intercom throat mikes and headphones. The noise of the moving tank alone would cause any conversation to be a shouting match between the two soldiers. Further, they are in column with three other noisy tanks, which would make a casual conversation even more difficult without utilizing their tank intercom system. (01:14:20)

Suggested correction: You can talk on a moving tank. It's not a 747.

Yes, unknown poster, you can talk on a moving tank, as I have done it many times. But on the old WW2 Shermans, talking at a conversation decibel level would be difficult without throat mikes and intercoms. They were not quiet like my old M1 Abrams tank.

Wardaddy: I had the best bow gunner in the entire Ninth Army in that seat. Now I have you.

More quotes from Fury

Trivia: The Tiger tank used in the battle with Fury is an actual German Tiger tank that was captured by British forces in North Africa in 1943. Its original turret number is 131, meaning the tank is from the 1st company, 3rd platoon, 1st tank, which was the platoon leader's vehicle.

More trivia for Fury

Question: Why did Gordo bring up the horse thing at breakfast?

Answer: Gordo was making a point to Norman that the crew of the "Fury" had seen some horrible things during the Battle of the Falaise Pocket. After wiping out an entire German army there, they were tasked with putting wounded horses out of their misery. The point was that Norman was not there, and did not experience what they had, so Norman could not judge the tank crew's actions.

Scott215

Gordo brought up the horse thing because him and the other (original) crew members were not happy with Don and Norman enjoying a nice, quiet meal without them. He even say's "You weren't there" meaning Don sharing this with Norman when he hadn't yet been through much war time like all of them had, together. They also say "We weren't invited", "Why weren't we invited." The horse story was to get at Don for not inviting them and sharing it only with Norman.
