Contents Foreword by Senator Max Cleland -- Prologue by Terry L. Benedict and Gabe Videla -- The loneliest soldier -- "...that ye may be able to bear it" -- Combat! -- "Pray for me, Doss" -- One busy Sabbath -- The last patrol -- The greatest honor -- Peace and adversity -- The heritage of Desmond Doss -- Epilogue by Les Speer.
Summary The men of the 77th Infantry Division couldn't fathom why Private Desmond T. Doss would venture into the horrors of World War II without a single weapon to defend himself. They called him a coward, but the soft--spoken medic insisted that his mission was to heal, not kill. Herndon shares the story of how Doss became the first conscientious objector to receive the Medal of Honor.
