    Movie Quotes:“>Last lines]
    “>Pvt. Sanderson is carrying David on his back, mortally wounded after the final battle, mirroring the movie's opening scene]
    Pvt. David Manning: I'm not gonna make it. I'm losing too much blood.
    Warren Sanderson: You're gonna make it. You're gonna owe me big, lieutenant.
    Pvt. David Manning: I'm gonna owe you shit.
    Warren Sanderson: Less than a mile, in less than a mile.
    Pvt. David Manning: It's too far.
    Warren Sanderson: It's not too far.
    “>David lets out a sad, disheartened laugh]
    Warren Sanderson: What's so funny?
    Pvt. David Manning: …You.
    Warren Sanderson: You mean what?
    Pvt. David Manning: Forget it.
    Warren Sanderson: I'm taking you home, Dave.
    Pvt. David Manning: Sure.
    Warren Sanderson: You're going home.
    “>David now looses conscience as the two walk off into the distance]

    Crazy Credits: We know about 1 Crazy Credits. One of them reads:
    The film has no closing credits. Instead, music plays over a black screen for several minutes.

    Goofs: We know about 1 goofs. Here comes one of them:
    Factual errors: The Dragons teeth of the Siegfried line are not shown as they really were (and in numerous places still are today). 1) In the movie the line is build with four rows of teeth. In reality the line is build with five rows. 2) The teeth are in reality not made in one size as shown in the movie, but in 3 different sizes, where the first and last rows contain the biggest pillars, the middle three are middle sized, and woven in the last row you can find the smallest. 3) The rows are not placed exactly behind each other. If you would see them from above, you would see an angle in the middle. 4) The rows of pillars are also not build in one line. If you would look over a row from the side, you would see a zigzag of pillars. 5) The pillars in the movie are too close too each other. In reality, the area between two pillars is so big, you can park a car between them (as is done by the author of this comment on numerous occasions).

    Trivia: There are 1 entries in the trivia list – like these:

    • The phrase “Nobody Dies” is a reference to the book and film “A Walk in the Sun (1945)”, where “Nobody Dies” is the platoon motto. Both book and film deal with similar effects of war as “When Trumpets Fade”.
