Publisher's Summary

During WWII, a young man from Lynchburg, Virginia, was drafted into the Army and sent to the 77th Infantry Division. When he arrived at camp for basic training, he promptly made it known that he was a pacifist and would be unwilling to take a life or even so much as touch a weapon. He did, however, say that he would be proud to serve his country as a medic, if they would let him.

No matter how much pressure the Army applied, the medic was unwilling to compromise his convictions. The other soldiers in his unit came to hate the conscientious objector, going so far as to throw their boots at him while he knelt by his bunk at night to pray.

When the men of Company B assaulted "Hacksaw Ridge" on the island of Okinawa, something happened that would change their opinion of the medic forever.

    "Great book; poor dialogue"

    Desmond Doss' story is incredible and should be shared. One can tell when listening to this book, however, that its author is not comfortable with swearing and the way rough men talk to each other during rough periods--especially at war. What this to character interactions in this book book, then, is it makes many of the interactions between other soldiers and soldiers towards PFC Dodd seem unrealistic.

    In the end, this is an incredible story of a hero, patriot, and Godly man. I definitely recommend reading or listening to it.

    Story
    "Enjoyed the audio version of this book"

    A very straightforward, unemotional account of a true hero of WWII. Desmond Doss was a man of great conviction. He never allowed himself to be swayed by the harrassment of his fellow soldiers or officers.He humbly gave the credit for his "Miracle on Hacksae Ridge" to God. Well researched..
