      Despite the giant red TOM CLANCY plastered on this book’s cover, Endwar is not a book by Tom Clancy. It is a book by David Michaels, based on a video game by Ubisoft, which was inspired by Tom Clancy. Set a few decades in the future, the U.S. and Russia are fighting World War III. The Russians have come up with a devious new plan to turn the war in their favor, and it’s up to Team USA to save the day. Some stuff happens, which I won’t spoil, but the plot doesn’t really matter too much. T [...]

      Let's get right to the point, this book is terrible. The book's title, Endwar is very deceiving. Instead of an endwar we have a Russian insurgency in Canada and jack being done about it on the part of the U.S. and our allies. If you were hoping for intense set piece battles that would decide the fate of the U.S. or the world then this book ain't for you. There is no character development and the characters themselves are generic in every sense of the word. The evil Russian in the custody of the [...]

      Absolute garbage! I read this book because I heard it involves a war on Canadian soil and was curious what this take be like.Granted this is Michael's version of the future, WW3 and real-world geopolitiks and he is adhering to the scenerio laid out by Ubisoft (I'm not a gamer, so I don't know this game at all). He is well-knowledge about American military materiel and paraphernalia but dumb regarding Canada and the landscape. I do felt sorry that the Russians are once again the enemy (considerin [...]

      Tom Clancy's EndwarDavid MichaelsRead it in paper-back, 416 pages.Oh book club, you make me read things I would normally not touch with a ten foot pole. Not because I hate books based on video games but because I have never come across or encountered a book that I rated highly that is from video game stock (any game really) and thus generally do my best to ignore that juncture all together.With that said, there is a steak dinner on the line. No time for coddling.Tom Clancy's Endwar, deceptively [...]

      I was hooked by the first 5 Chapters, then it lost me thereafter. I just finished it through because I wanted to know who Snegurochka is. I'd probably love the game version. The book? not quite.

    • Sam says:

      A book based on a video game. Non stop action. Fans of the game should read this book, but everyone else doesn't need to.

      It is the year 2020. After capturing a Russian GRU Colonel named Pavel Doletskaya in Moscow, Team Victor of the Joint Strike Force (JSF) retreats from Russia, with Sergeant Nathan Vatz as the sole survivor. Colonel Doletskaya is interrogated by Major Alice Dennison back in the U.S. The colonel refuses to answer any questions, even under torture. The interrogation is then turned over to Charles Shakura, the JSF's top interrogator. Yet the Colonel still holds out and he is then sent to Cuba. Meanw [...]

    • Juan Navarro says:

      Endwar is a terrible book, the spiritual continuation of the Op Center series. Just the big TOM CLANCY doesn't save it. In this book basically the poor Russkies can't best the supermen with supergadgets of the good old USA. Ok i get that is supposed to be a book from an american writer but realism anyone? The hysterical part is the air battles: the near-UFO F-35 defeats all the Russians planes but unluckily loses 2 at the end just by dumb luck. The book relies too much on techno crap and is bori [...]

    • Paul Wilson says:

      If you were expecting an intelligent Tom Clancy plot line you thought wrong. Russians invade Canada, Canada DOES NOTHING, because they’re too conservative and don’t want a war even though they were invaded. The American characters are based off of every G.I Joe villain while the Russians are based off of any Anime, or cartoon villain you’ve seen growing up. The book is a good laugh, not an intelligent Red Storm Rising counterpart.

    • Paul Stenske says:

      Sure, why not.Fast paced from beginning to end. Enjoyed reading it, but disappointed that the author had The Prez make irrational decisions in order to create more suspense in a couple of the storylines. Wished there was a little more character development. With that said, it was good enough to make me want to read the next book in the series.

    • Stephen says:

      A quick read. Predictable plot twists. No real character development.

    • Cesar Corona says:

      This book was okay. My favorite part about this book is probably the parts where the action happens because the author is really good at describing the scenes and it feels like an actual movie. My favorite character probably has to be the captain because of how committed he is towards his team and how he wants them to succeed.

The Genre of the book is Action/War.Within the novel “End War” by a New York Times bestselling author, Tom Clancy wrote an extraordinary book for ordinary people and I was one of them privileged to read a masterpiece.

      Never judge a book by its cover, judge it by its acknowledgements page. “Tom Clancy’s Endwar” is in big, bold, embossed letters on the cover. In smaller print, at the bottom, is the author, David Michaels. Oh right, the author. The franchise administrators give thanks to half dozen people each from Ubisoft and the Blackhawk Products Group. Endwar is based a video game. Weapons makers get prominent product placements. Clearly this is a lucrative enterprise.If you haven’t guessed by now, I [...]

      The Middle East is a wasteland, Russia and Canada are the world’s leading oil suppliers, and World War 3 has just broken out. This is the beginning of the end. Tom Clancy’s Endwar is about the Russian government invading Canada in a quest to be the world’s leading oil supplier. The only ones with the power to stop them are the U.S. Special Forces. In the beginning of the book, Sgt. Nathan Vatz and his team are on a mission to capture a Russian colonel who is believed to possess valuable in [...]

      I'm not a tech-thriller buff so I was very surprised at how engaging the story was for me.I didn't feel left out not knowing the technical terms for the weaponry, or for the military ranks and maneuvers. The narrative was easy, it flowed well, so Michaels' explanations of the weapons' destructive power was all the visualization I needed to play the scenes out in my mind.The story was also told in a gender-neutral way, meaning it wasn't a dude epic made by and for manly men. Surely, that is the d [...]

      "I bought this book at my local Publix because this game was catering to my curiosity. I never picked it up but all I know at that time was this game was supposed to based on a modern World War in which oil is a major issue. Thus I picked this book up to see - or at least get an understanding - of what the game would be like. It was actually a prequel to the game and in some ways it makes it flawed to most people.I understand the hook of this book being that in order to find out what happens nex [...]

Russia hires a terrorist organization called the Green Brigade to wage attacks against the US. The us is suspicious of Russian activities so it sends a special forces unit to Moscow to capture a Russian intelligence officer named Colonel Doletskaya. The operation is a success and the US transfers the pris [...]

      I never thought I would enjoy a book developed from a video game as much as I enjoyed this one. I read it as a screen reading for my son who wants to read it, and I ended up liking it quite a lot more than I was expecting.The setting is early World War III, where the Middle East has fizzled as an international oil producer and Russia has taken over that market. In an effort to tap even more resources and own the world's petroleum economy, the Russians invade Canada and pursue major oil reserves [...]

    • Joe Garwood says:

      This is not the sort of thing I would normally read, but it jumped off the shelf at me at the drug store. Complete impulse buy. And it wasn't half bad. There were a lot of characters to keep track of, and only a few were really fleshed out. This was the equivalent of an action movie, though, so everyone was running around and shooting and trying to survive so there wasn't much room for thought and dialog. The action didn't get stale, which I feared it might. And there wasn't the typical masturba [...]

    • Josh says:

      I liked the pace of the book. It was engaging from the start. Thats about all it had going for it. The action of it was good but it was all over the place and hard to follow. Every time a character was introduced in the battle, they died in the same chapter, page, and even paragraph. No point in giving them a name if they're going to die right away.I wished that the Russians were going to be more sinister villains than strategic diplomat types just fighting for oil. The ending sequence was terri [...]

      Let the record show that this book was the quickest I ever read. Is it a thought provoking book? Absolutely not. Is it a great story? Its ok. Is the dialogue on par with a Quentin Tarantino movie? Not even close. Is there any character development? Not really all characters are stereotypes. Was it enjoyable? Heck yes!I would put this book in my personal "Micheal Bay book" list, and let me tell you why. Its all action and brain candy and it was a fun read. Story wasn't great but the action was aw [...]

    • Phillip Dimarzo says:

      this was a very good book because of the different settings this book thats place in: u go from the alley ways of russia to the columbian forest to canadas country side. this book is about the war between the allies and the rusians, it was at the time that the americans sent a mission to russia to kidnape a man who worked for the russian secert service to extract info. of the russians next plan for attack. another good thing about this book is the fact that it follows the lifes of many charaters [...]

    • Bryan says:

      I didn't want to have to think much when I picked this one up to readd I wasn't disappointed. No, I didn't have to think much. For those who like to play Halo every once in a while, perfect book. Americans kick some tail in this book without much resistance. The @%*! Russians are at it again, trying to take over the U.S. via Canada. Haven't they seen Red Dawn?! Don't those Commies ever learn not to mess with the Wolverines? Red Dawnw THAT is a movie to rent for some mindless entertainment! It lo [...]

    • Mr. Gottshalk says:

      I have read the Splinter Cell books and really enjoyed them. I thought EndWar would be similar: it's not. First of all, there are way too many characters and moving parts. This is the kind of book where each chapter picks up another mini-story about people I can hardly track. Second of all, the non-stop action is a bit much, even though it is an interesting plot: the Russians invade Canada for oil reserves, and the good old U.S. of A. helps out a powerless Prime Minister of Canada. There was har [...]

    • O8ColtonW Wall says:

      i thought that this book was a good book because I like sifi and military. I think it is a great book for teenagers and older. I like how it mentaly put you in the spot and mind of a soildure in war. its intense and thrilling. There is a lot of action that takes place to keep you interested so you don't get bored. You don't get lost from chapter to chapter because each chapter ends by leading you into what is happening in the next chapter. This book does not try to make things seem easy by not d [...]

    • Joyce McKune says:

      Hope there is a follow up. It left lots of loose ends. Just getting to know the characters and the book was done. It didn't mention being part of a series like "Op-Center" or "Power Plays". Set in the future, the Russians invade Canada to take over the oil fields. Canada doesn't want us to help stop the invasion, but when the fear of nukes next door presents, Special Forces to the rescue! Many sub-plots and twists. Would like to follow up on the Lady Pilot, the Marine who rescued her behind the [...]

    • Joe says:

      It's a tie in to an upcoming video game I am interested in. Set in the near future, technology has rendered nuclear war impossible, ao we are back to conventional engagements. Three factions, US/North America, Russia/asia, and Europe are at war over resources. It is pretty pedestrian writing for the most part, with a few good segments sprinkled throughout. The characters are pretty forgettable, but if you are interested in descriptions of near future military operations, or the backstory of the [...]
