LOS ANGELES, July 29 (UPI) — In the trailer for the upcoming Mel Gibson-directed “Hacksaw Ridge,” Andrew Garfield stars as Desmond Doss, a conscientious objector who refused to fight during the Battle of Okinawa.

Based on a true story, Doss — a Seventh Day Adventist — refused to fire a weapon during the Battle of Okinawa in World War II. Instead he single-handedly saved the lives of 75 of his fellow soldiers without firing a shot.

Doss was awarded the Medal of Honor by President Harry S. Truman for his lifesaving efforts.

The movie also stars Hugo Weaving, Sam Worthington, Vince Vaughn, and Teresa Palmer.

“Hacksaw Ridge” hits theaters on Nov. 4.
