In Endgame: The Secret Force 136 Alex’s imagination takes him to medieval Chinese battlefields as he learns to play Xiangqi (Chinese chess) with his great-grandfather, Tai Gong. In the months that they spend over the chessboard, Alex comes to understand the important strategies that guided Tai Gong and his decisions as he navigated life as a Chinese Canadian in an anti-Asian era in Canada. In the process, Alex learns about the mysterious Force 136 and the sacrifices its members made to show their loyalty to a country that had utterly disregarded them.

  1. Keith Lock

    A wonderfully written and illustrated children’s book. “Endgame: The Secret Force 136” tells a true story from Chinese Canadian history that is largely unknown, and needs to be told.
