Deserters on the Home Front
The story of the deserters who were shot at dawn then pardoned nearly a century later has often been told, but these 306 soldiers represent a tiny proportion of deserters from the British and Dominion forces. In this talk Andrea Hetherington gives us a preview of her forthcoming book Deserters of the First World War- the Home Front, due to be published by Pen & Sword in April 2021.

Andrea tells the stories of deserters who disappeared from camps and barracks within Great Britain at an alarming rate, exploring their motivations and survival strategies and looking at the punishments incurred both by the soldiers themselves and by those who sheltered them from arrest.
