Episode Goofs

When Winters types the report a close-up off the keys show that, even though he is typing the correct letters, the typewriter's shift lock is not on, therefore the words he is typing should be lower case, but the next shot show the all caps title of his report.

When Easy Company is crossing the Rhine to rescue the British Red Devils, Bull Randlemann is seen rowing the inflatable boat without an oar. He is making the motions of rowing with nothing in his hands

At the end when Winters is talking to Nixon, the bayonet in Winters' belt disappears and reappears between shots

The British para commander is referred to as a brigadier-general and is wearing a general officer's cap badge. There has been no such rank in the British Army since the 1920s. The equivalent, brigadier, is not a general officer and wears a different cap badge.
