The storyline in this episode appears to be borrowed in part from The Longest Day.
Captain Priller ranks as one of the nastier Nazi officers in show history.
Saunders: (about the Germans) They're stayin'.
Kirby: Looks like we are too.
Priller: (to Father Bomar about the paratrooper) Recovering enemy casualties is hardly the function of our troops.
Priller: (to Father Bomer) I want none of my soldiers hurt fighting outraged old Frenchmen.
