DESERTED explores newspaper accounts of 1263 military soldiers who intentionally fled from their units across Great Britain from 1726-59. The details provided in these articles include name of the accused, aged, personal features, [in many cases] birthplace, and any additional attributes the issuing regimental agents thought necessary to include. The supplied accounts remain unchanged, as they appear in the original newspapers, and it is with the greatest of hope that the reader will find this era, the eighteenth century, to be among the most fascinating of times in British military history.
