On numerous occasions Eva Braun, Hitler's mistress, is mentioned either by Hogan's men or the Germans. Braun's association with Hitler was a closely guarded secret only known to Hitler's inner circle, and whose existence wasn't revealed until after the war.

The Germans usually address each other by the U.S. equivalent of their ranks. Sergeant Schultz's rank is "Oberfeldwebel". Colonel Klink is "Oberst". Captain Gruber is "Hauptmann". The Gestapo and S.S. had their own rank system, which was different than the traditional military rank system, so Major Hochstetter should not be called 'Major'.
