“Free Men” is a science fiction short story by Robert A. Heinlein. It is copyrighted by Heinlein in 1966, but was probably written between 1947 and 1950, judging from the foreword to it in Expanded Universe, which mentions that it was written after “Rocket Ship Galileo.”


In the story, America has been invaded and occupied after the “20 Minute War” and “Final Sunday.”
