Hacksaw Ridge – The Conscientious Objector
World War II American Army Medic Desmond T Doss who served during the Battle of Okinawa refuses to kill people and becomes the first Conscientious Objector in American history to win the Congressional Medal of Honor.
“Hacksaw Ridge, which Gibson hopes to shoot next year, is based on the life story of Desmond T Doss, a private in the US army who was drafted in 1942 and worked as a medic in the Pacific theatre. He was credited with saving the lives of 75 men during the battle of Okinawa after braving enemy fire while evacuating wounded soldiers near the front line. The Seventh-day Adventist was the first conscientious objector to receive the medal of honor, and was also handed two bronze stars and three purple hearts for his heroics. Doss was wounded by a grenade and shot by a sniper while working on the battlefield.”
