During World War II, an undercover British soldier tries get word to the Allies that the Germans have tons of supplies buried in five excavations across Egypt.
The opening prologue states: "In June 1942 things looked bleak indeed for the British Eighth Army. It was beaten, scattered, and in flight. Tobruk had fallen. The victorious [Erwin Rommel] and his Afrika Korps were pounding the British back and back toward Cairo and the Suez Canal."
I'm not afraid of generals...
Lt. Schwegler: You're not?
Mouche: ...it's lieutenants I'm afraid of.
When John Bramble is introduced to the Germans as Paul Davos, a calendar is behind him on the wall. It is a 1942 calendar but shows Saturday, July 4th in red as a holiday...which of course is not a holiday in Egypt.
