Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of Paper ... Just too silly Yes, I know it is just a book, but it is a really bad book. I was hoping for some well-researched material with Canadian forces fighting with the Americans defending in Canada. However, the book is so “Americans good, everyone else bad” as to make it sad. If this is now Clancy’s writing style, that is also sad. Hunt for Red October and Clear and Present Danger are in the past. This should not be the future. The Russians invade Canada, though I’m not sure why they land far away from their targets and give the U.S. a lot of time to deploy to stop them. There is no mention of the Canadian military at all. Most of the fighting takes place in the Territories and in Alberta, but no Canadian Rangers show up, no fighters from Cold Lake, no PPCLI from Edmonton, even though the base in on the outskirts of Edmonton, and no JTF2 which are considered by most as one of the best trained special forces unit in the world. No Canadian that wimpy could be elected and no prime minister would ever be allowed to sit on the sidelines as the Russians invaded. One reviewer mentioned Paul Martin. Both he and Tom Clancy should read some history. Canadians joined World Wars 1 and 2 while American politician, many isolation Republicans, sat on the sidelines. Martin sent Canadians to fight in Afghanistan for the right reasons. One Canadian political leader in this book is an idiot and the other is a Russian spy! As to the book itself, Clancy gets most of the geographic facts correct. I don’t know why the Russian land in Red Deer and drive their tanks to Calgary, so the Americans can destroy them on the way. I don’t know why the bad guys use the Calgary tower, as the PetroCan building is taller and was there when the book was written. I’m not sure why a strike against the High Level bridge in Edmonton would stop the attack cold going towards the Alberta Legislature. When that bridge is busy and I want to go a different way, I have several other bridges I can use. Maybe the Russians had bad maps or the brave warriors of Google Earth fooled them. If you want some good future military fiction, go ask someone. This book is not it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from What do you know? CanCon!? What do you know? Tom Clancy's Endwar has a heck of a lot of Canadian content. The description might suggest the book addresses a near-future war between Saudi Arabia and Iran sets the stage for a recently release Tom Clancy, strategy video game of the same name. Once you get into it, however, it's clear these events are completely in the past and the story exists in the new, post-Saudi/Iran war, with references to the video game story basically ignored. But who's left as top oli competition for Russia with the Middle East out of the petroleum picture? Canada! Specifically, Alberta! Look out! The Russians are coming! Three quasi Superpowers, the USA, Europe and Russia slug it out in various plots and intrigues, but in the end the Russians are over the pole, fighting tooth and nail for....High Level? Enter into that somewhat entertaining concept is the interplay between the American President, and the Canadian Prime Minister, who seems to be based on a Paul Martin-esque figure than a right-leaning Conservative. Actually, the Canadian response is one of the most unbelievable aspects of the book, but it made me think, what would Paul Martin do? I got the book for the back story on the video game, but while the connection is clearly there, it's not so strict you can't have one without the other. In the end I found my province under threat in an only somewhat crazy military thriller / sci-fi production. Very unlikely, but not as off the wall as alien invasion. Maybe I should start stocking canned goods and finally be a good Albertan and get my F.A.C. Or wait, do good Albertans get those?

About the Author

Thomas L. Clancy, Jr., known to his multitudes of fans as Tom Clancy, was born in 1947 in Baltimore, Maryland. He graduated from Loyola College in 1969, became an insurance agent, and in 1973 became the owner of an insurance agency. It was not until 1980 that he started writing military thrillers. Clancy's novels are highly successful, detailed techno-thrillers about espionage, the military and advanced technology. Clancy is so well liked by the military that he has been invited to visit military bases and tour ships. His first bestseller was Red Storm Rising, a fictional military account of a conventionally fought World War 3, published in 1986. His books Hunt for Red October, Patriot Games, and Clear and Present Danger were so popular they were adapted into major motion pictures. Some other bestsellers by Clancy are The Cardinal of the Kremlin, The Sum of All Fears, and Rainbow Six. Into the Storm: A Study In Command (1997) is part of a nonfiction series cowritten with retired U.S. Army General Fred Franks Jr., commander of the U.S. Army VII Corps, whose job was to defeat Saddam Hussein's Republican Guard during the 89-hour ground war in Desert Storm. Other nonfiction written by Clancy includes Submarine, Armored Cav, Fighter Wing, and Airborne, which describe the workings of military units and their weapons, and Reality Check: What's Going on Out There? Tom Clancy lectures at the FBI, attends meetings at the CIA, and often dines at the White House. He is a member of the U.
