About this book
During the Second World War, the British lost 100,000 troops to desertion, and the Americans 40,000. The overwhelming majority of deserters from all armies were front-line infantry troops and without them the war was harder to win. This fascinating new book is one of the last great untold stories of WWII and attempts to reveal the reasons why these men decided to flee their ranks, and what happened once they made their decision to flee.
The extraordinary story of the deserters of the Second World War. What made them run? And what happened after they fled?
