It says the Nazi like tactic of killing stragglers worked to keep SOME soldiers fighting.

Davis himself said 2/3 of the CSA soldiers were gone without leave.  That's what Davis said.

Desertions were the reason the CSA lost -- eventually there simply was no effective troops.  The ones that were there, would not fight.

Even those that remained, wouldnt fight, said Johnston and Beauregard, to Davis

Desertions by the CSA was the biggest single aspect of the war.  You can't admit a single basic truth about this war - and you sure aren't going to start by admitting massive desertions from 1863 on.
I wonder if you could share where you got your information?
