About Hacksaw Ridge

Hacksaw Ridge is the extraordinary true story of WWII medic Desmond Doss, played by Andrew Garfield (The Amazing Spiderman), who, in Okinawa during the bloodiest battle of WWII, miraculously saved 75 men in a matter of hours without firing or carrying a gun. He was the only American soldier in WWII to fight on the front lines without a weapon, except the simple prayer he uttered before he single-handedly evacuated the wounded from behind enemy lines, under constant enemy gunfire and artillery bombardment. Doss’ courage and faith won the admiration of his commanders and fellow soldiers, as he saved the lives of the very men who had persecuted him for refusing to carry a gun.

“Doss’s strong convictions, his Adventist beliefs, and his unshakeable confidence in God come alive in the film Hacksaw Ridge, and hold the promise of inspiring a new generation of believers. The SDA Church appreciates the care and attention to detail brought to this powerful telling of Desmond Doss’s unique, unparalleled story of faith”
