The third edition of this 1932 scholar's work features a new introduction by Mark A. Weitz that introduces readers to Martin's methodology and challenges contemporary historians to continue her study of southern desertion. The work itself is a sectional study that relies upon a combination of official government records, personal accounts of diaries and letters, and statistical analysis to draw its conclusions.
