Factual error: Once the men first climb up to "Hacksaw Ridge," the camera pans over numerous corpses. One of them has an M1 Helmet lying on its top to where the liner is seen. The liner has the web suspension straps cross each other instead of being tied in the center. This means the liner is a Vietnam era type, and not World War II.

Captain Glover: All I saw was a skinny kid. I didn't know who you were. You've done more than any other man could've done in the service of his country. Now, I've never been more wrong about someone in my life, and I hope one day you can forgive me.

More quotes from Hacksaw Ridge

Question: In the first combat scene, we see the big climbing net already in place. Who put the net up in the first place and how would that have been done? And why would the Japanese not simply cut it down after the first fights when the US troops retreated?

Michael Ebner

Chosen answer: US troops put the net up (in reality the ridge isn't as tall). The Japanese were fighting a defensive battle from heavily fortified positions on a reverse slope, and it suited them to have the Americans attacking from that point. The Americans also used ladders on other parts of the escarpment.
