This seems like speculation. You can easily say that they're too tired to do anything. I think where armies are undisciplined (no punishment), or respect for the non-combatant or combatant is non-existent many will do what they want.

The worst rapists in a modern army were probably the Russians after the fall of Germany. I'm sure the Germans did some nasty things. The Japanese were pretty horrible.

Many will not becuase many have a moral outlook on life. Some becuase they don't like to hurt people. Almost everybody likes to think of themselves, whether religious or not, as good people.

How your actions will be after you have been true days of near-dead are different than a normal person who knows that the end of the world is near. I doubt that stress levels will be the same, because knowing the world will end is more liberating for the mind I believe (since you know you can't avoid the unavoidable).
