Practically overnight, the fragile chains of supply and high-technology infrastructure fall, and wholesale rioting and looting grip every major city. As hordes of refugees and looters pour out of the cities, a small group of friends living in the Midwest desperately tries to make their way to a safe-haven ranch in northern Idaho. The journey requires all their skill and training since communication, commerce, transportation and law enforcement have all disappeared. Once at the ranch, the group fends off vicious attacks from outsiders and then looks to join other groups that are trying to restore true Constitutional law to the country. Patriots is a thrilling narrative depicting fictional characters using authentic survivalist techniques to endure the collapse of the American civilization. Reading this compelling, fast-paced novel could one day mean the difference between life and death.Hide synopsis

Patriots is a very thought-provoking novel. Mr. Rawles is knowledgeable about what may happen during a major breakdown of American society because of his experiences and being a former intelligence officer. This book was very depressing to one of my friends who read it but not to me.
Knowledge is good, even knowledge about the end of the world as we know it. Don't be depressed, be prepared.
I like this book a lot. 4 1/2 stars. There were a few things I would have omitted, like the build up of the brothers. Why? just so you can mention them one time later on. Info on radios overkill. But overall a very good intro level story to prepping/ survivalism. I own five copies and recommend/lend to all I believe might be interested in a potential societal collapse. I liked the sequel to a lessor degree. Only own one copy of Survivors.
I read this book as someone who is neither a survivalist nor a conspiracy theorist, nor someone interested in weapons. What I AM interested in is the question of how modern people might survive if the normally expected parts of society (supermarkets, public transportation, gas stations, cell phones, law enforcement, etc.) were to disappear. If that is something you find interesting to have thought about and developed in some detail, this is a book for you. Yes, it is flawed, in that it is not particularly well written (the author is not a professional wordsmith), and one can argue about the merit of the political issues. Still, if you might want to think about what you might do if civil society fell apart, the author gives you well-thought-out reality therapy. He does so in a book filled with rather interesting individuals who go through rather interesting experiences.
