“For those of you interested in learning more about PFC Desmond T. Doss, I invite you to read my new book. It’s about Desmond’s early years growing up, how he got his undying faith, and the extraordinary moments throughout his childhood wherein I believe he experienced divine intervention.”
Gregory Crosby – Co-Producer “Hacksaw Ridge”
"The Birth of Hacksaw Ridge is an intriguing and moving account of Desmond Doss' early years, his boyhood adventures and unique experiences that shaped the Godly character of this great and humble American War Hero. Those fortunate enough to learn of this book and read the story will be entertained and more importantly blessed. It was my privilege to have known Desmond, and to be a part of delivering his story through the documentary of his life."
Gabe Videla - Executive Producer - "The Conscientious Objector"
"As the grandson of WWI Conscientious Objectors, and as a confirmed pacifist, I am delighted to have read this account of Desmond Doss, not just for his courage and humble spirit of service, but to gain a greater understanding of how he came to a position of saving lives in war, rather than taking them. This book is a must read for those who want a deeper insight into the life made famous by Hacksaw Ridge."
- Victor Hulbert, Communications & Media Director, General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists | Trans-European Division
Desmond T. Doss was the first Conscientious Objector in history to be awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor. His story transcends all color and creed of any kind. Whether a child, teen, adult, geriatric, Seventh-day Adventist, Jew, Catholic, Muslim, or Buddhist, it really doesn’t matter. All who are aware of this magnificent man have been awed by his unwavering faith in God, his undaunting courage, his steadfast honesty, his unquestionable integrity, and most of all, his unconditional love for his fellow man.
