The British Army executed 346 men during World War I. The offence of the overwhelming majority was desertion, with murder and cowardice coming poor seconds.

Few who share the responsibility for the executions emerge with credit from these revelations. For the Sake of Example tells a grim, at times horrifying story -- but a story which should no longer remain untold.
