Despite being a British schoolboy myself, I did not perceive I was on the wrong side at any time while watching this movie - as a German comrade too despite my complete rejection of Hitler and his teachings as to what makes a man "superior" ultimately, as I believe him to have been a monstrous creature in this regard to us all who are the peoples of Europe now living with his legacy on the planet - as were his henchmen such as the likes of Himmler et al!!!
