Synopsis for "The Deserter"

A Howler is put up in front of a firing squad. The rest of the Howlers talk about how it came about, and go into a flashback.

Solicit Synopsis

We call it "The Deserter!"—and you'll call it one of the greatest war-mags of all time! We kid you not!


  • Ayers is credited as Richard Ayers.
  • During World War II, P.T.S.D. had not yet been discovered. Sufferers of it, were labeled as Cowards and Deserters, and were traditionally executed.
