You have to realize though in both real life and in the movie the bomb was intended to work in the confined and pressured spaces of the Wolf's Lair so it worked out pretty similar. Anyway, I did like the movie. Really well done, and even some of his known famous sayings were historically accurate.Seems the blast would have done more damage to the one in the movie as oppose to the real life one as described in the book.
n 1943, Stauffenberg was promoted to Oberstleutnant i.G. (lieutenant-colonel of the general staff), and was sent to Africa to join the 10th Panzer Division as its First Officer in the General Staff (Ia). There, while he was scouting out a new command area, his vehicle was strafed on 7 April 1943 by British fighter-bombers and he was severely wounded. He spent three months in hospital in Munich, where he was treated by Ferdinand Sauerbruch. Stauffenberg lost his left eye, his right hand, and the fourth and fifth fingers of his left hand. He jokingly remarked to friends never to have really known what to do with so many fingers when he still had all of them. For his injuries, Stauffenberg was awarded the Wound Badge in Gold on 14 April 1943 and for his courage the German Cross in Gold on 8 May 1943.
Haven't seen it yet but you think their technical experts would have caught that. But then again I didn't see many sight hoods/rods in Enemy at the Gate either. And the American sniper in Kellys Heroes was using a Mosin sniper rifle. Oh well-thats Hollywood.True, I just thought it as kinda odd to see no sight hoods or cleaning rods on the rifles that were used by the reserve army in berlin...really no reason to take them off. Now in north Africa I could understand...
The History Channel just had (Sunday) a 2-hr piece on the "real true" story of the German resistance. Great to have watched both within about 48hrs of each other.. loved the movie... despite TC's performance.
