In the last moments of World War II, a young German soldier fighting for survival finds a Nazi captain's uniform. Impersonating an officer, the man quickly takes on the monstrous identity of the perpetrators he is trying to escape from.
The scenes where Boyce is disturbed by soldiers whilst he is looking into the spy holes of the cells... you can see behind him a grave stone tablet upon which is the name Moreau.... this may be a nod to a story by HG Wells and several movies called the Island of Dr Moreau. In this story a man finds himself shipwrecked on a tropical island where the owner, a Dr Moreau, has been experimenting on humans and animals to create hybrid creatures similar to the experiments being carried out by the Nazis in this movie.
Some German soldiers have a skull painted on their helmet. This specific type of skull decal was used by a Finnish army unit (1st battalion, infantry regiment 46) in the continuation war 1941-1944. A famous colorized photo of three Finnish soldiers in a trench wearing this sort helmet decal of is often incorrectly associated with Germans or the SS.
The end credits show "Task Force Herold" marching through present day Germany and interrogating unsuspecting civilians.
