    In his review of military absconsion throughout history, Graeme Kent reports that when the Second World War ended, it was estimated that there were over 20,000 deserters of various nationalities on the run in Britain. His survey of the ignoble art of running away includes stories of disgruntled Roman legionnaires, Civil War turncoats, Naval mutineers and even famous personalities, such as General Custer and Herman Melville, who couldn't resist the urge to go AWOL.
