> > > All of that has canonical explanations. The original invasion fleet we see in the game Halo Reach was sort of a preinvasion group. It was just the super carrier Long Night of Solace and a few corvettes. They knocked out Reach’s communications and had been deploying ground forces by the time Noble team discovered them. Reach’s long range communication had been disabled so they could only call for help from ships nearby. That’s why there were only like 3 or 4 UNSC ships during the Reach game campaign. All of the stuff that happens in the book that you describe happens when the second covenant fleet arrives. That’s when they meet the covenant in space and the huuuuuge space battle happens between like 100 covenant ships and lots of unsc ships. It’s all explained right here.

> Well, you’re being ignorant. You didn’t write the canon so you don’t really have the authority to go around declaring that whole books didn’t happen just because you don’t agree with them. You don’t get to say stuff isn’t canon. Bungie invented the canon and bungie decides what is and isn’t cannon. Also, do you really think saying a whole book that originally laid out master chiefs origins and why things were how they were before Halo CE as non cannon is an appropriate reaction to a few minor details not matching up with your perception of what you THINK happened? You don’t know. You clearly didn’t do the appropriate legwork or else we wouldn’t be having this conversation. Reach book say different thing than Reach game so I make wild declarations of non existence. But no, you’re probably right. The guidebook and instruction manual for Halo CE says John is the last spartan alive and we know that’s not true. Oh well balls I guess now we gotta discredit Halo CE’s entire storyline. Great, now Halo 1 never happened.
I never said the whole book isn’t canon, only the battle of reach and events that arnt in the halo wars timeline.
and bungie has decided what isnt cannon, everything mentioned in fall of reach around the battle of reach, halo first strike and ghosts of onyx(except for a few small things with the spartan 3 project)
