Created by #1 New York Times bestselling author Tom Clancy

Based on the bestselling video game, this new series will take readers onto the battlefields of World War III with the technical savvy and explosive action that Clancy fans have come to expect.
Thirty years ago Tom Clancy was a Maryland insurance broker with a passion for naval history. Years before, he had been an English major at Baltimore’s Loyola College and had always dreamed of writing a novel. His first effort, The Hunt for Red October, sold briskly as a result of rave reviews, then catapulted onto the New York Times b...

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?

Everybody get—”Team Sergeant Nathan Vatz never finished his sentence. The Russian T-100 main battle tank on the opposite end of the intersection finished it for him.Vatz slammed onto his gut, sliding across the rain-slick pavement as the office building fifty meters ahead exploded with a thunderous boom.Shards of concrete, glass, and mangled metal arced into the cold night and fell in a hailstorm on the blackened remains of the HMMWVs and a pair of eight-wheeled Stryker infantry combat vehicles, behind which Vatz’s special forces team had taken cover. A black rose of smoke backlit by fire bloomed across the intersection, driven by a wind thick with the stench of cordite.With a sudden lurch, the fifty-ton tank rumbled closer, its 152mm smoothbore main gun swiveling menacingly, tracks grinding over the bodies of the rifle squad—the tank’s first victims—who’d been hit as they’d dismounted from one of the Strykers.Vatz wiped sweat from his eyes, cleared his throat, and spoke into the tiny voice-activated boom mike at his lips: “Victor Six, this is Vortex, over?”His voice had cracked. Calm down. They just had to get the hell out of here. That was it.But now their exfiltration had gone to hell. No bird to swoop in, land on the rooftop helipad, and whisk them to safety. No nothing.And that tank wasn’t operating alone. The rest of that platoon had to be nearby, with dismounted forces from the BMP-3 infantry fighting vehicles parked outside the gate.“Victor Six, this is Vortex, over?”Where was the rest of his twelve-man team? They’d been right behind him, and the captain had been holding up in that doorway, which was now empty.Vatz bolted to his feet, darted back behind the still-burning hulk of a Mercedes SUV, and suddenly raised his pistol, about to fire—When he realized the men down the alley were friendlies, his team, easy to mistake because of their Russian Spetsnaz uniforms.Weapons Sergeant Zack Murrow had already shouldered the Javelin antitank missile they had recovered from one of the dead infantrymen and was moving toward the street, about to lie prone and get a bead on that tank.Vatz rushed toward Zack; never breaking cover, he said in perfect Russian, “Don’t miss.”The sergeant answered in English. “Right. But forget the Russian, Nathan. Our cover’s been seriously blown.”Vatz and his colleagues were Joint Strike Force soldiers wearing enemy uniforms. They would be considered spies. They would not be taken prisoner. There would be no diplomatic negotiation for their release.Hurrying farther along the wall, Vatz found the detachment commander, Captain Tom Gerard, and the assistant detachment commander, Chief Warrant Officer 3 Douglas Barnes, speaking softly, Gerard working an index finger over his pocket PC. Next to them were the team’s two commo guys, and farther back were the two engineers and assistant weapons sergeant, Russian Varjag heavy pistols drawn as they covered the end of the alley. One of the two medics was positioned at the near side.
