    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    Watch out for when Beck commits suicide towards the end of the film.Ludwig Beck did not succeed in killing himself as is shown in the film. His first shot grazed his temple. Fromm gave him time to "collect himself" before he tried again. His second attempt also failed, so another officer ended up finishing him off.

    An important fact they missed......And yes, I am an anorak.

    I liked it too. Also watched it 3 or 4 times. Can't help it paying attention to the uniforms and all other props, so I missed the story the first time...

    I know what you mean Kris,
    Henning von Tresckow was not promoted to Major General (Generalmajor) until June 1st, 1944 - until then, he held the rank of colonel. However, Kenneth Branagh is wearing a Major General's uniform throughout the movie.....Like I said,....Anorak.
