After making first contact with the destroyer, while they await orders from the Kaleun, Frenssen's and Preacher's positions differ between subsequent shots. Moreover, Ullman sits where Preacher should be sitting.
On the DVD release the subtitle content is significantly different from the version shown on cable. Hitler is not disparaged the same way at the going away bash for example.
