War of Honor

David Weber

Synopsis of War of Honor


Thomas Theisman didn't. After risking his life and a fresh round of civil war to overthrow the Committee of Public Safety's reign of terror and restore the Republic of Haven's ancient Constitution, an interstellar war was the last thing he wanted.

Baron High Ridge didn't. The Prime Minister of Manticore was perfectly happy with the war he had. No one was shooting anyone else at the moment, and as long as he could spin out negotiations on the formal treaty of peace, his government could continue to milk all those "hostilities only" tax measures for their own partisan projects.

His Imperial Majesty Gustav didn't. Now that the fighting between the Star Kingdom and the Havenites had ended, the Andermani Emperor had his own plans for Silesia, and he was confident he could achieve them without a war of his own.

Protector Benjamin didn't. His people had made too deep a commitment to the Manticoran Alliance, in blood as well as treasure, for him to want to risk seeing it all thrown away.

And Honor Harrington certainly didn't. The "Salamander" had seen the inside of too many furnaces already, knew too much about how much war cost.

Unfortunately, what they wanted didn't matter...

Reviews of War of Honor


With War of Honor coming in at over 800 pages, Weber has room to expand subplots and secondary characters and bring to the reader a feeling of depth and completeness seldom seen in science fiction novels. -- Ron Peterson, Amazon.com

The complexity of the latest and longest but not the most action-packed Honor Harrington yarn indicates that Weber is developing the characterizations and setting the political and strategic framework for grander action than ever to come. -- Roland Green, Booklist

Despite the length and complexity of War of Honor, it seems likely that at least one more Book is needed to complete Honor's career... -- Wesley Williamson, BookLoons

Not bad, but not great, either. I hope that Honor hasn't worn out her welcome. -- Mark Walker, Scifi.com

BRAVO, David Weber! A job WELL DONE! I look forward to the next! -- Detra Fitch, Huntress Book Reviews

Given its futuristic setting, WAR OF HONOR relies on a terribly flawed premise. -- BooksForABuck.com

In short, despite minor blemishes I highly recommend the Series and eagerly await the next installment. -- T. Craig Drake, Scifi Dimensions
