The People's Republic of Haven's sneak attack on the Kingdom of Manticore has failed. The Peeps are in disarray, their leaders fighting for power in bloody revolution, and the Royal Manticoran Navy stands victorious.

But Manticore has domestic problems of its own, and success can be more treacherous than defeat for Honor Harrington. Now, trapped at the core of a political crisis she never sought, betrayed by an old and vicious enemy she'd thought vanquished forever, she stands alone.

She must fight for justice on a battlefield she never trained for in a private war that offers just two choices: death . . . or a "victory" that can end only in dishonor and the loss of all she loves.


David Weber is the new Big Name in science fiction, and his dauntless Honor Harrington has conquered not only the enemy but the hearts of thousands of readers everywhere, who have been relentlessly demanding Honor's exploits in a more permanent form. And we're happy to oblige.

At the publisher's request, this title is sold without DRM (Digital Rights Management).

About the Author

A lifetime military history buff, David Weber has carried his interest in history into his fiction.  In the New York Times best selling Honor Harrington series, the spirit of both C.S. Forester's Horatio Hornblower and history's Admiral Nelson are evident.  With over five million copies of his books in print, David Weber is the fastest rising star in the Science Fiction universe.  His Honor Harrington series boasts over 3 million copies in print, and Weber has had over thirteen of his titles on The New York Times Best Seller List.  War of Honor, book 10 in the series appeared on over twelve Best Seller lists, including The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, and USA TODAY.

While he is best known for his spirited, modern-minded space operas, he has also developed a fantasy series, of which two books have been published:  Oath of Swords and The War God's Own.  David's solo work also includes three novels of the "Dahak" series, and the stand alone novels:  Path of the Fury and The Excalibur Alternative.

Weber's first published novels grew out of his work as a war game designer for the Task Force game Starfire.  With collaborator Steve White, Weber has written four novels set in that universe: Insurrection, Crusade, In Death Ground, and The Shiva Option.
Recent bestsellers in planetary adventures also include the teamwork of John Ringo in the best selling Empire of Man series where the titles March Upcountry, March to the Sea, March to the Stars and We Few have made appearances on The New York Times List.

Weber's proliferation continues with author Eric Flint, where they joined forces in the Best Selling "Ring of Fire" alternate history series, for 1634: The Baltic War, coming in May.

A popular guest at science fiction conventions, Weber makes his home in South Carolina with his wife Sharon, three children and a passel of dogs.

Fans of History will also enjoy the nods to the French Revolution found in this series. Some fun "Easter Eggs" scattered through the books. Some fairly easy to spot: Rob S. Pierre, for instance. Others are more subtle such as Honor reading one of the Horatio Hornblower books, a Gift from a friend who thought she'd enjoy a bit of "Ancient History". Well thought out and generally gripping stories.

This is the fourth in a series of books with Honor Harrington that shows just how clever some science fiction writers can be. The book deals with great drama and complete character development. Unlike the heavy handedness and 2 D Star Wars characters, this book delivers the suspense of a mystery novel within the realm of an advanced military culture. A great book worth the reading, it has been re-isssued for that exact purpose.

Overall this was a good read but it could have been more lively. Too much feeling not enough action. The dueling was unbelievable for an advanced society.

Field of Dishonor is a tragic book, one in which Honor Harrington endures the loss of a lot of things, while finally dealing with a couple of loose ends that have harangued her since Basilisk Station. I don't want to say much more, because of how much hangs on spiolers, but in spite of knowing damn well what was going to happen because of the conventional plot devices, I felt Honor Harrington's loss as clearly as she might have felt it. There's no space combat in Field of Dishonor, one of the few Honor Harrington books not to have any, but it doesn't need it. One of the best Honor Harrington books out there, read it right after reading The Short Victorious War.

More Harrington, good as ever, with political intrigue by scumbag noblemen thrown in for spice.

Still my guilty pleasure. These are cheesy, no doubt about it, and they are getting more predictable, more angsty, and too successful. It's the Jack Ryan thing all over, the story that I want to read in these is Horatio Hornblower in space; the more successful the character becomes, the further away from that the story goes.

Standard entry in the Honor Harrington series. OK for light entertainment, but not worth re-reading.

Finally a well written book without a space battle! Very good character development as well as plot. We get a view of the workings of the constitutional monarchy that rules Manticore and the politics that take place. All in all a very satisfying book.

The 1st book did take me a little while to get into, but once you get to know the character & her struggles, it is harder & harder to put these books down!
