The Great Escape II: The Untold Story

Factual error: MacKenzie is referred to as "Gunnery Sergeant". This is not a rank used by British and Commonwealth forces. He actually wears the rank insignia of a Flight Sergeant.


Factual error: Colonel von Lindeiner was not executed. He testified to the investigation into the Gestapo murders and died in 1963 at the age of 82.


Factual error: Johnnie Dodge wears no medal ribbons. Even if the real Dodge had not had the DSO, DSC and MC, it would be inconceivable that a major who had fought in two world wars would have no campaign ribbons.
