I wish I knew. Apparently you can request it becomes available, but then I guess it's a waiting game. As the above posters mention, simply changing your address temporarily to a different country allows purchase from other sites. I have no idea if this is wrong or not. I see no harm in purchasing a book from another country and 'bringing it home'.

Why can't I get this on kindle in the UK?

One of my biggest gripes is that whereas you can get all the Clancy books in English from Amazon Germany, why are there German editions on the English site, and hardly any English ones?

I know it was quite extreme, but using the setup above, I transferred my Kindle account to the US and it then allowed me to purchase it and all my UK content is still on the Kindle - not sure how easy it will be to reverse, but I'll work on that one when I'm done reading this!

W.Stretten is right, I have a Server in the Amazon cloud (hosted in the US), if I browse to from there I'm not redirected to the UK and Without Remorse is available on the Kindle, sadly when I try to purchase it I get "Your Kindle account is registered at To shop for Kindle titles available for your country, please shop at" :(

Same situation in Australia - Red October is the only book available, and looking at the typos, I wouldn't be surprised if the Kindle variant had been produced by running a paper version through a scanner

All the Clancy books are available on Kindle in the US and Germany. Just if you log on from the UK to the US site you cannot see them!

On the subject of availability in the US, sadly you've been misinformed. Lots of fan fiction and "inspired by" fiction is available, but as for Tom's back catalogue, presently the same ebooks are available as here in the UK. There is no conceivable reason why amazon uk would withold kindle books that are on its sister site! Still, as per #M Newton's post above, I'm sure these titles will appear in time.

Bought my mum a kindle for Christmas as all she wanted was this and all the Tom Clancy Jack Ryan books. How disappointed was I when I set the device up for her and then found that I couldn't download the books she wanted to read!! Makes me wonder why I bothered! I have discovered that you can download I think 3 from ITunes but of course - due to incompatibility with the kindle, you cannot read them on this device! This does add though to the point that this seems to be amazon dragging it's heals rather than a uk publishing issue. You would also think though that considering you could buy a physical book in the USA and then bring it home with you in a case to the UK that the publishing issues with electronic copies would be a fairly minor one to rectify - it isn't like Tom Clancy is on a 'banned' list in the UK more just that the thinking needs to be joined up so that the right people get the right royalties.

Can someone explain why you can not download us tom clancy books onto a uk kindle

What proof do we have that Amazon passes these requests on to the publisher

What really frustrates is some books are available, therefore this leads me to believe it's not a uk publishing rights problem and therefore leads me to think it's in the pipeline, but has anyone eveer clicked "I'd like to read this on kindle" and seen it digitised?

Not only can you buy the Clancy Jack Ryan novels in the US but they are also available in Germany. Why the continuing delay does Amazon UK pass on readers requests to the publishers?

Apparently on the US site can you can order all of his books. Seems that only the UK cant get what they want. Makes me wonder why I bothered buying a kindle i cant read any of my books on the shelf on it!!! Am sure they will be released soon though

I wouldn't hold your breath. I keep plugging away at the "I would like to read this on Kindle" link whenever I'm on the amazon site, but It seems that Tom is no longer as popular as he once was, either that or Amazon seem to have some problem getting the publishers to listen to us.
If anyone does happen to look at this post that has any influence in this matter, the Tom Clancy fanbase may not be what it once was but we tend to be a fairly loyal lot. So if you can see to it that you release his works for kindle, you will be repaid. I know that I would probably buy the lot so I can clear some shelf space, and keep Tom's works on my always faithful Kindle.
Keep the faith, it may happen one day (fingers crossed).
