The latest in the Honor Harrington series, War of Honor actually focuses more on the politics of several galactic "nations" than it does on actual naval (space) battles. This is a departure from the earlier books, but there is significant character development.

The review of this Book prepared by Wes Monkey

This novel explores the political and military decisions made by four different mega star systems as they approach a war that did not have to happen. In so doing the characters associated with each system are revealed in all their strengths, flaws, failings and virtues. The outcome of the intersteller conflict ends without a clear winner, many losers and the resolution of a personal conflict for the primary character, Honor Herrington.
