Just saw the movie, and loved it! Now have an interest in reading the book in seeing if there is additional details that the movie doesn't pick up on. Just curious if you had met Desmond Doss while doing your research for this book?

Adam Palmer I never met Desmond Doss in person.
The movie, like all movies do had to change some parts of the story to make it fit into the time frame of the movie.
Desmond's wife was not a nurse. They met at church while she was selling religious books door-to-door.
Desmond was never locked in a military jail.
Desmond was involved in two other battles, before Hacksaw Ridge. Etc.
But I believe the movie was a fair representation.
