Why did the Fury's commander (played by Pitt) continue to expose himself with the .50 cal on the turret when he knew there was a sniper out there? His gunner had just had his head taken off and he himself had been hit in the shoulder. Was it a case of not wanting to surrender to a Waffen-SS unit or was it just movie melodrama, or maybe a bit of both?
(I would have dressed everyone in German uniform, from the dead, to confuse the attacking force and gathered all weapons including stick grenades inside and under the tank. Molotov cocktails might have been made and the remaining fuel siphoned and drained around the tank - to be lit in case of a night assault by the Germans. A pit would have been dug under the tank to provide a defensible position if all upstairs was lost. The commander and bow gunner could have hid in this pit with all hatches locked from the inside and used the weapons stashed there if necessary after the sniper appeared.)
