"You're nothing but a coward!" they said. But the soft-spoken medic insisted that his mission was to heal, not kill.
When Desmond knelt by his bunk to pray, his fellow soldiers hurled boots and insults at him. Even his commander wanted to throw him out of the army. But when his unit arrived on the battlefield, the intrepid medic quickly proved he was no coward.
One terrifying day in the vicious battle for Okinawa, dozens of Desmond's former tormenters lay wounded and bleeding atop Hacksaw Ridge. As Japanese bullets rained down, their fate seemed hopeless.
Could one unarmed man save their lives?
This pause-resister will keep you riveted to your seat as you discover how Desmond Doss became the first conscientious objector to receive the Medal of Honor. Desmond's dramatic true story of integrity, redemption, and heroism will inspire you to live by the courage of your convictions.

Never got to enjoy this story.
l really wished l could have listened to this book but the Rushed overloud preface was enough to put me off. Also this is not a Childrens book so l do not need a mixture of silly and ill performed accents. Thank goodness you name your narrators so l can AVOID at all cost having to listen to this dreadful voice again. l went out and purchased the book and thoroughly enjoyed it. Loud, rushed, annoying voiced and smug is not how l prefer my narrators Thank You.

Inspiring Story, but agonizing Narrator
I saw the movie, and decided to purchase the book. I saw the reviews and thought surely the narrator couldn't be that bad. I was wrong. So hard to appreciate the courageous story of this American hero because if the painful reading.

Solid story, terrible narrator
It is a good thing the story is compelling and attention grabbing. If it were otherwise I would have bailed after listening to this narrator. It was like listening to a male version of Siri. He can read the words, but often puts the emphasis on the wrong syllable. If I have to hear him say the word “again” again I may have to not finish the last hour of the book.
