Here is the official synopsis of Hacksaw ridge:

The film tells the extraordinary true story of Desmond Doss (Andrew Garfield) who, in Okinawa during the bloodiest battle of WWII, saved 75 men without shooting or carrying a weapon. He was the only American soldier in WWII to fight on the front lines unarmed, as he believed that while war was right, killing was wrong nonetheless. As an army medic, he single-handedly evacuated the wounded from behind enemy lines, braved fire while treating soldiers, was wounded by a grenade and hit by snipers. Doss was the first conscientious objector to win the Congressional Medal of Honor.
