The Patriotic Traitors: A History of Collaboration in German-Occupied Europe, 1940-45 is a 1972 book by David Littlejohn. It is a history of the European nationalists who took part in collaborationism with the Third Reich. Individual chapters are devoted to Norway, Denmark, the Netherlands, Belgium, France, and the Soviet Union.


Littlejohn was later criticized for the book and in his work The Kings and the Pawns, Leonid Rein stated that it was wrong to "attribute all collaboration during World War II to fascist and fascist-like parties".[1]
