Meet the Author

Tom Clancy
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 bestseller list after President Reagan pronounced it "the perfect yarn." From that day forward, Clancy established himself as an undisputed master at blending exceptional realism and authenticity, intricate plotting, and razor-sharp suspense. He passed away in October 2013.

    Excitement and Entertainment

    David Michael's novel EndWar, created by Tom Clancy, is about a future world engulfed in the flames of World War III. In the story, the global balance of power is altered by two major events: one, the independent European states in the European Union become a unified country known as the European Federation, and Saudi Arabia and Iran attack each other with a nuclear assault that destroys the Middle East's oil supply, resulting in Russia becoming the worlds leading oil supplier, and in turn a rich military power. Seeking complete global dominance, an imperialist Russia begins a war with the U.S. and European Federation. During the early stages of the war, where the story begins, a U.S. Special Forces team is sent behind enemy lines in Moscow to kidnap a Russian officer who can tell the American's about a new mysterious invasion that Russia is known to be planning. The Americans and Europeans are then thrown in to a race against time to uncover the secrets of Operation 2659 before it is too late.
    I found the book personally to be exciting and suspenseful. The imagery was sufficient and the book easily pulls you into the futuristic and brutal battlefields of World War III. Even if you have no knowledge of military weaponry the book cradles you with concise descriptions of the vehicles, aircraft, and missiles that may trip you up if you can't picture them. The downside to the novel was that the literary aspects of it like vocabulary, dialogue, and characters were all so elementary and basic to the point of almost being unprofessional. Despite this, the book makes for a very entertaining, 400 page non-stop thrill ride.

    Endwar

    It felt like I was embedded with the men and women fighting World War Three. Clancy made the characters and the war that they were engaged in seem very real. The action was so well depicted and moved so fast that I read this book in little over a day. Yes,I do have a life, but it was raining and it was on a weekend, so give me a break.
    This book starts out with a chilling quote from Albert Einstein which set the theme for the whole story: "I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones."
    From the European Theater to the frozen lands of the Northwest Territory in Canada, you are there with the warriors as they fight for their very existence. Warriors in their own right such as Major Stepanie Halverson, pilot of F-35B Joint Strike Fighter, who happened to be on a training mission at the wrong time or maybe the right time. Their is also Commander Andreas of the USS Forida, SSN-805, a Virginia-class nuclear submarine whose character is tested when communication satilites are destroyed and he doesn't know what is happening.
    There are of course many Marine, Special forces and other warriors to numerous to mention for you to fight along side. Keep some bandages on hand to treat your wounds.

    Good but Cliche

    Overall I thought the book was a fun read with an interesting setting with a futuristically savvy take on World War Three. But that said I also thought it was terribly cliche. The dialogue is grossly over the top and expected, along with characters. Some I found interesting, but most of them served as nothing more than stereotypes of military positions. The story was fairly good simply due to the setting, which is one of the most original ones of a future world war that I found highly interesting. However, the abundance of terrible cliches throughout make it out to be a simple read thats only slightly rewarding to finish.

    END WAR, the best fuurestic war book ever!!!

    This book is one of, if not the best book i've ever read to this day. It's action packed with a variety of characters from a Marine Force Recon sergeant to a Army Special Forces sergeant to the president of the United States all the way to a colonel of the Russian Federation and the president of the Russian Federation and many more. The book sets you in the year of 2020 and the world is on the break of World War 3 and the two major oil reserves of the world (saudi arabia and iran) destroy each other in a nuclear exchange and no the world relies on Russia, Canada, and a few other small reserves around the world. So through Russian growing greatly in economic strength, it forms the Russian Federation which build its' military strength to expand mother Russia. Since Nuclear war isn't an option anymore because the worlds superpowers have sent up satilite/laser weapons to shoot any nuke out of the sky the Worlds super powers are forced to use conventional warfare. Through the caos American forces form the Joint Strike Force and a majority of the European countries (excluding the UK and other neutral countries) form the European Federation or Enforcers Corps, lastly Russia with its new military might forms the Russian federation. The book instantly starts of with action when Sergeant Nathan Vatz and his Army Special forces team is in moscow with the objective of ensuring the capture of a Colonel Pavel Doletskaya to figure out the ultimate question; what is operation 2659 and who is Snegurochka? Shortly after the capture and interrogation of Colonel Doletskaya, Russia invades Canada with their eye on the Oil reserves of Canada. While this is going on Russia is still invading Western Europe frighting the JSF and Euros. Though the Prime Minister of Canada refuse to take military action towards the Russians, the JSF is forced to leap into action to pretect the oil reserves from the Russian since they are their main source of oil. Thoughout the Russian invasion a number of major events happen through the rescue mission of a fighter pilot to holding off the russians in a couple of key cities and towns in canada in order to keep the oil reserves out of Russian hands. I'm afraid thats all i can tell you about the book without giving away the best parts of the book. This is deffinately the first of a series of End War books and i look forward to reading the sequels.

    World War III has begun

    End War was an excellent book. It had over sixty different characters all with their own personalities. The plot is that the Russians try too invade the United States. They invade Canada and fight their way too Alberta and the Northwest Territory. They capture the Russian Colonel and interrogate him through the entire book. So if you are interested in wars or battles you need to read this book and you will be impressed.

    Don't get robbed.

    This book is a complete disappointment. The plot is ridiculous and the writing is poor. If you have the mental capacity to navigate to this website and read a review, you will be utterly disappointed.

    Very good book! I absolutely loved this book. Non-stop action fr

    Very good book! I absolutely loved this book. Non-stop action from beginning to end. I loved how it jumped from different perspictives, ie: Special forces team, F35 pilot, Force Recon team, Presidential, Russian Federation, Submarine ops. The story line is very good, and intense. It seemed very realistic from the charactors, tactics, weaponry, and dialoge. I sat on the edge of my seat thoughout the whole book!

    Tom Clancy does it again

    What a read. It was so exciting and thrilling, I could not put it down. For men, a great futuristic military read that you get into and can enjoy. Tom Clancy has yet to let me down. The action is amazing. The ending had me craving for more!

    If you want a glimpse at a possible future, read this (unless you don't understand army/gov't vernacular.

    Tom Clancy's Endwar is based on Ubisoft's bestselling game (that I don't have unfortunately). Anyway, it is a realistic fiction/mystery/science fiction story about a possible world war 3 future that pits the European Federation (EF) and United States against a new, improved, wealthy, and heavily armed Russia. Russia becomes one of the world's leading gas and oil supplier after it takes over land devastated by a nuclear exchange between Iran and Saudi Arabia. Soon they try to rebuild their military power to restore their land (motherland) back to true greatness). America, now wanting to stop the Russians before they start a predicted invasion, is given information by the EF and sends a Special Forces team to capture a Russian colonel named Pavel Doletskaya. Doletskaya is said to hold the key Russia's next invasion plan and the answers to these questions: What is Operation 2659 and who is Snegurochka? As the US and EF political leaders and military forces try to find a way to stop the Russians, battle is beginning and the outcome may not be pretty for all 3 countries. Overall, the book was interesting, however, hard to keep up with because of the constant switching between groups of characters and rising actions. If you like suspense and being kept on the edge, this book is for you.

    Interesting book-a departure from the ordinary

    I thought the this book was good overall, however there were more than a few areas where the dialog all but forced you to skip over it. Specifically when dealing with the military movements and combat strategies. If I were a miitary historian, I might have enjoyed it more. Also, the cover, title and explainations give the impression that some of the warbots have a humanoid appearance, but as you read on, you find that not to be even remotely accurate. That was a bit misleading and disappointing. I typically enthusiastically jump in to Tom Clancy writing when it has a futuristic tinge to it, but this is a book that left me uniterested in reading any of the previous or subsequent titles.<BR/>Finally - with only a couple of exceptions, I found the characters to be plastic and predictable.<BR/>Overall I have to give this title 2 stars.

    great book but it sounds nothing like the game

    The funny thing is this is the longest book i have read and liked but when i got to the end and saw that there was a game for it so i went and looked at the game and there is nothing that looks like the book i read like were invading pairs not Canada and they have nothing about the space station that the Russians took over and they space station gets destroyed.
