During the bloodiest battle of WWII, in Okinawa, Desmond Doss saved 75 men without firing or carrying a gun. He was the only American soldier in WWII to fight on the front lines without a weapon, as he believed that while the war was justified, killing was nevertheless wrong. As an army medic, he singlehandedly evacuated the wounded from behind enemy lines, braved fire while tending to soldiers and was wounded by a grenade and hit by snipers. Doss was the first conscientious objector to ever earn the Congressional Medal of Honor

"Bobby lives with his maternal grandmother, Martha, in Waylon, Texas, where not much goes on and work is hard to come by. Martha has worked for thirty years in the local beauty shop, and has raised Bobby since her daughter and son-in-law's death in a car accident, which Bobby, as a young boy, survived. Even after he'd grown and moved away, Bobby would return to Martha after each financial failure and drunken stupor. But it was always a tough living arrangement since Martha maintained incredible optimism and total belief in God, and Bobby rejected religion, was always pessimistic and remained angry over his parents' death. Bobby's latest business adventure has him set up a used appliance shop right on Martha's front lawn -- used appliances and paraphernalia litter the yard. The business goes nowhere, sending Bobby into another tailspin and more fights with Martha over whether God will help him through another tough time. After taking a part-time job as a guard -- and getting fired from it -- Bobby challenges Martha to a duel: If God produces a miracle in twenty-four hours, he will change his ways; if not, Martha must give up religion."--Publisher's website

"On January 20, 2017, Donald J. Trump was sworn in as the 45th president of the United States. Over the next sixteen months, events would unravel that test every American's strength of character: executive actions, an immigration round-up of unprecedented scale, and a declaration of martial law. Rick finds himself caught up as the frontman of the new administration's edicts and losses his humanity. In a play that recalls George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty Four and the Nazi regime, Building the Wall is a terrifying and gripping exploration of what happens if we let fear win." --
Building the wall : the play & commentary by Robert Schenkkan( Book )

4 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Written in a white-hot fury on the eve of the 2016 election, the stunning new play by Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winning dramatist Robert Schenkkan is creating a nationwide sensation. Bypassing the usual development path for plays, it has been signed up to open in five theaters across America in a National New Play Network Rolling World Premiere, starting in Los Angeles (March) and Denver (April) and continuing in the Washington, DC, area, Tucson, and Miami, with more productions to follow, including in Santa Fe and New York City. Building the Wall lays out in a harrowing drama the possible consequences of Donald Trump s anti-immigration campaign rhetoric turned into federal policy. Two years from now, that policy has resulted in the mass round-up of millions of illegal aliens, with their incarceration overflowing into private prisons and camps reminiscent of another century. The former warden for one facility is awaiting sentencing for what happened under his watch. In a riveting interview with a historian who has come seeking the truth, he gradually reveals how the unthinkable became the inevitable, and the faceless illegals under his charge became the face of tragedy. The play is accompanied by commentary from three prominent scholars: on the real purpose of the border wall, our dark nativist history of restricting immigration, and the tradition of political protest in art. -- Amazon.com
