Corrected entry: Throughout the first battle at "Hacksaw Ridge" some of the men are seen pulling the pins of grenades with their teeth. In actuality, the pins on the grenades (both modern and old ones) take at least 7 pounds of force to release the pin. If someone did that, they'd either cause severe damage to their teeth or maybe lose a couple.Matdan97
Corrected entry: During the whole battle scene there is not one single soldier running out of ammunition, other than by implication (in hand-to-hand combat for example you could assume that they had run short of rounds). We do not see a single shot when ammunition actually is running out, for example by the clinging ejection of an empty M1 rifle magazine or by machine gunners shouting for ammo. No one ever seems to reload. When the sergeant is dragged by Doss, firing his grease gun, he had already fired at the sniper without reloading and then fires a continuous burst of at least 100 bullets. The magazine of a grease gun contains 30 bullets.Michael Ebner
Corrected entry: When the Sargent is describing the M1 Garand to the men, he calls it a 30 caliber weapon, I believe it is in fact a 30.06 caliber. The carbine was 30 caliber.
Corrected entry: When Desmond's dad interrupts the trial, he is seen with the Silver Star medal. Desmond's father served in WW1, but the Silver Star wasn't created until 1932.
