HACKSAW RIDGE is based on the true story of small town boy turned army medic Desmond Doss (played by Andrew Garfield) who, in the battle of Okinawa during World War II, saved 75 men without firing or carrying a gun. A “conscientious objector,” Doss fought on the front lines without a weapon, as he believed that while the war was justified, killing was nevertheless wrong.
