The Liberator is an American adult animated war drama miniseries, the adaptation of Alex Kershaw's documentary book The Liberator: One World War II Soldier's 500-Day Odyssey, published in 2012.

The Liberator is based on a true story. It takes place during World War II and tells the story of the U.S. Army officer Felix Sparks and the 157th Infantry Regiment. The division spent more than five hundred days on European battles and participated in the liberation of the Dachau concentration camp prisoners.

The Liberator is filmed in an unusual technique, combining the play of live actors with painted backdrops. It is a hybrid technology of Trioscope studio, which allows, according to the authors, to create a dramatic picture. The use of Trioscope in work on the cartoon was supposed to make it more mature, provide the required level of drama, and bring the image closer to a documentary series.

The Liberator is played well by the leading actors Bradley James as Felix Sparks, Jose Miguel Vasquez as Able Gomez, and Martin Sensmeier as Samuel Coldfoot.

The Liberator is probably not the most powerful military series in recent years, but it is an honest military story, a view of the war from the point of view of one person, who went through it from beginning to end. It deserves respect.
