True story of Pfc. Desmond T. Doss who won the Congressional Medal of Honor despite refusing to bear arms during WWII on religious grounds. Doss was drafted and ostracized by fellow soldiers for his pacifist stance but went on to earn respect and adoration for his bravery, selflessness and compassion after he risked his life-without firing a shot-to save 75 men in the Battle of Okinawa.

Every now and then I read non fiction. I'm working my way through Redemption at Hacksaw Ridge right now. The movie was so amazing and the book provides so much more details. I like reading about people's experiences of WWII and The Great War. #historynerd
