"I know I broke my oath. I know I'm a deserter."
Will[src]

Will is executed for deserting and breaking his oath.

Desertion takes place when a man abandons his post, particularly in times of war. It is a serious crime in the Seven Kingdoms; deserters are considered outlaws and thus are marked for death.

Within the ranks of the Night's Watch, desertion is considered a form of oathbreaking. Deserters are not only hunted down by sworn brothers of the Night's Watch but also by lords should a deserter enter his lands.
