During the Second World War 150,000 American and British soldiers are known to have deserted in the European theatre. Focusing on the stories of three men who turned their backs on the war in Italy, France and Africa, this book takes an alternative look at how the war was fought, revealing the harsh conditions and psychological pressures that pushed soldiers to abandon their posts despite, in many cases, having already shown great courage in combat.
