Liberators: A Novel of the Coming Global Collapse is a James Wesley Rawles New York Times best-selling survivalist fiction / dystopian fiction novel, published by Penguin Books in 2014.

According to

The New York Times bestselling author of Patriots and How to Survive the End of the World as We Know It - Tactics, Techniques and Technologies for Uncertain Times' and founder of The Survival Blog returns with his latest survival thriller and gives readers an unprecedented look into a post-apocalyptic world resulting from an all-too-real disaster scenario.

When looting and rioting overwhelm all the major US cities, Afghanistan War veteran Ray McGregor makes his way from Michigan’s Upper Peninsula to his parents’ cattle ranch in Bella Coola, British Columbia, in remote western Canada. Joining him is his old friend Phil Adams, a Defense Intelligence Agency counterintelligence case officer based in Washington State.

Reckless banking practices, hyperinflation, and government negligence have led to an unprecedented socioeconomic collapse in America that quickly spreads throughout the world. Lightly populated Bella Coola is spared the worst of the chaos, but when order is restored it comes in the form of a tyrannical army of occupation. Ray and Phil soon become key players in the resistance movement, fighting the occupiers in a war that will determine not only their own personal survival, but also the future of North America.

Liberators depicts a world that is all too conceivable and terrifyingly familiar. Fast paced and packed with authentic information on outdoor survival, self-sufficiency, and small-unit tactics, James Wesley, Rawles’s latest thriller will resonate with his dedicated fan base and encourage new readers to prepare for anything from lesser disasters to the dreaded worst-case scenario.[1]

Liberators is Part of the Patriots Series

His first book, Patriots - Surviving the Coming Collapse, a dystopian economic collapse novel, was first released in 1998. It was first released as Internet shareware in the early 1990s, and later published in interim form as TEOTWAWKI: The End of The World as We Know It, in the late 1990s.[6] The story is set in the near future and describes a period of hyperinflation and a socio-economic collapse. While it is a fictional story, it is essentially a survival manual dressed as fiction.[7] It was re-released in December, 2006 in expanded form. One early reviewer of the novel commented: "While it is true that the protagonists appear to be part of the religious right, it is clearly incorrect to stereotype them as intolerant racists or anti-government zealots.".[8] The publisher's synopsis describes the novel as "distinctly pro-Christian, pro-preparedness, pro-gun ownership, and anti-racist."
