Book Description

In 2315, the Earth Union is losing a thirty-year-long war with the Krag Hegemony.

Having encountered the Krag before, Space Commander Max Robicheaux now faces daunting challenges aboard the USS Cumberland: the dangers from the enemy without…and clashes with crew and superiors within.

Meanwhile, Doctor Sahin receives a coded message summoning him to a secret meeting that aims to forge an alliance that could change the balance of power in Known Space. But first, he must circumvent the fighter ships and heavily armed troops of the traitorous emir bent on killing him before he reaches the negotiating table.

Both men must call upon their developing skills and growing friendship to bear the burden of carrying between the Krag Hegemony and the Earth Union a fateful ultimatum and the shocking answer—an answer that could spell eternal slavery, or even extinction, for all humankind.

The second novel in the Man of War series, For Honor We Stand continues the galactic naval adventures of Robicheaux and Sahin.

Revised edition: This edition of For Honor We Stand includes editorial revisions.

    About the Author

    H. Paul Honsinger is the co-author of the "Man of War" Trilogy, two volumes of which are now available: "To Honor You Call Us," released in November 2012, and "For Honor We Stand," released in February 2013. The third volume, "Brothers in Valor" is expected in mid-2013. A second trilogy, tentatively entitled "The Sting of Battle" is planned, with the first volume expected in Winter 2013-14. As long as readers continue to be interested in these books, Paul plans to continue writing them. Space and military history are H. Paul Honsinger's life long passions. Paul believes that, even though it is usually set in the future, Science Fiction can be as "real" as any other literary genre. No matter what instrumentalities he may control, no matter what power he may have at his fingertips and what wonders await him in the year 2315 and beyond, Man will still be Man, and it should be possible to write stories of that time that engage us, that move us, that touch us, and that inspire us today. Paul is a retired attorney with extensive trial experience. In addition to his interests in space and warfare, he is widely read in the fields of International Relations, the History of Science, Roman and Byzantine History, and Firearms History and Technology. He was born and raised in Lake Charles, Louisiana and is a graduate of Lake Charles High School, The University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, and Louisiana State University Law School in Baton Rouge where he was a Member and Associate Editor of the Louisiana Law Review. Honsinger has practiced law with major firms on the Gulf Coast and in Phoenix, Arizona, and most recently had his own law office in Lake Havasu City, Arizona. He currently lives in Lake Havasu City with his beloved wife, Kathleen, his daughter and stepson, as well as a 185 pound English Mastiff and two highly eccentric cats.

    More About the Author

    H. Paul Honsinger is the author of the "Man of War" Series, two volumes of which are now available: "To Honor You Call Us," released in November 2012 in self-publication and issued in a professionally edited and packaged treatment by 47North in February 2014, and "For Honor We Stand" released in February 2013 in self-publication and in March 2014 by 47North. The third volume, "Brothers in Valor" is expected in the Spring-Summer 2014 time frame. The first three books are to be followed by future volumes, at a rate of one to two a year, for years to come.

    All three volumes will be available in Kindle eBook, paperback, and audio editions (from Brilliance Audio, narrated by top-drawer voice actor Ray Chase).

    Space and military history are H. Paul Honsinger's life long passions. Lacking the physical attributes to be an astronaut or a soldier, and not endowed with the mathematical ability essential to become an Aerospace Engineer or an Astronomer, he "settled" for a career in law. But, the study of space and war have always been a part of his life. He became an amateur astronomer, made himself an expert on the history of space exploration (if you ever tell him that the moon landings were a hoax, expect an argument; expect to lose), and never stopped studying the history and the art of war.

    Paul started reading science fiction at the age of seven (starting with "Between Planets" by Robert Heinlein) and has been a lifelong fan of the genre. He also developed an interest in military history upon seeing the movie "Patton" on television in 1972 when he was twelve. He has spent years studying in detail the campaigns of Alexander, Caesar, Napoleon, Lee, Grant, Jackson, Halsey, and Patton and--perhaps most significantly--thinking deeply and precisely about what it would be like if the stories about combat in space he read and saw on the screen were told in a way that made scientific and military sense.

    He never thought he would be a fiction writer. His wife, Kathleen, one day pointed at his computer chair and said: "Sit. Start writing. Now." The result was the first draft of Chapter 1 of "To Honor You Call Us" (the Prologue was written later). Paul tremulously presented it to Kathleen and asked "am I wasting my time?" She said "no" and the rest of the novel followed. Paul's goal is simple: to write military science fiction done right--stories in which the alien enemies are believable foes, fighting for a plausible reason, with weapons that don't violate the laws of physics, and where the tactics used by both sides make some sort of geometric and military sense. He wanted to bring to space the same kind of realistic adventure one finds on the sea in the novels of Patrick O'Brian and C.S. Forester. Why not, he thought, tell realistic human stories against the background of a realistic military conflict that just happens to be set 300 years in the future? And why not try to evoke in the imaginations of readers vivid images of what the lives of these men would be like, fighting for the survival of mankind among the stars, thousands of light years from home?

    Paul believes that, even though it is usually set in the future, Science Fiction can be as "real" as any other literary genre. No matter what instrumentalities he may control, no matter what power he may have at his fingertips and what wonders await him in the year 2315 and beyond, Man will still be Man, and it should be possible to write stories of that time that engage us, that move us, that touch us, and that inspire us today.

    Paul is a retired attorney with extensive trial experience. In addition to his interests in space and warfare, he is widely read in the fields of International Relations, the History of Science, Roman and Byzantine History, and Firearms History and Technology.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Read it, devour it, digest it . . . enjoy! 26 July 2014
    By SteveR
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    When you buy the first book in a series and then the second and read both of them within 5 days and then look impatiently for the third, then you know it's a good read!

    They say these are like Patrick O'Brien's books . . . I don't know, I have 3 of those staring down at me as I type this and I haven't got past page 100 in the first book, I find them so hard going . . .

    Anyway back to the book, plots and sub-plots are interwoven, we learn more about Max and his flaws and a bit more about Bram the doc, but not a lot more. We also learn a bit more about the other main characters and are introduced to some more and their characters.

    It's good for once that the "alien" cultures often have superior technology and Honsinger has done well in weaving them into the story, ensuring that a one size doesn't fit all and they retain their distinctive cultures as do other human factions.

    As usual I'm not trying to spoil the story - read and devour, digest at leisure - 500 pages for £1 - what a bargain promo Amazon! - even £3 wouldn't be too much.

    The only think I would suggest is that a story this long could be split into 2 parts and the ending . . . for a while I thought it should be at the start of book , but I'm still confused about the best presentation . . . perhaps a part 3 and some extra filler to link it to part 2?

    Anyway can we have the next book please and can you get started with the new series?

    5.0 out of 5 stars Incredibly detailed. 4 Aug. 2013
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    What I loved about this book was all the little details that could be found by careful re-reading. It felt like a Navy that had been around for centuries with all it's traditions and quirks. It actually felt real to me unlike practically all the fleet structures that you see in Scifi books. Things like the Midshipman Easter egg hunt and the nicknames for specific members of the crew.
    The characters themselves were (in my opinion) likeable and beliveable especially the doctor. The action scenes were also enjoyable and the tactics Beliveable.
    What I loved most about this book however was the Vaaach. No spoilers just read the books and find out. Well the Vaaach and Horneymeyer.

    5.0 out of 5 stars A worthy homage. 1 Oct. 2013
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    I so enjoyed the jack Aubrey novels that this sci fi version is fascinating. While the introduction of nuclear weapons is a little concerning - how does anyone live long enough to develop their "naval" society and culture? The balance of battle versus organisation of the ship and crew is excellent. Always a great pace. Wish there were more novels in the series

    5.0 out of 5 stars as good as the first 24 Jun. 2013
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    The only problem in the book is that it has to end, can't wait for the next.

    Thanks for the stories Paul, don't like facebook so can't comment there but hopefuly you will read this, take a look at Admiral Cohrane - the greatest sailor ever, grand admiral of three countries, defeated more French ships, and possibly more adversary ships than any sailor in history - made Nelson look like he was slacking and tied down more enemy (French) soldiers than any other other force of its size. A superb tactician and startegists and litle is written or generally known about him. And you thought John Paul Jones could fight!!!!

    4.0 out of 5 stars More space opera parody? 21 Nov. 2014
    By JPS TOP 500 REVIEWER
    Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
    This is Book 2 of the Man of War, an enjoyable military space opera romp that takes place during the 24th century and leads like a parody of the genre.

    It includes very much the same ingredients as the first volume, with the two main characters and their behaviours, Lieutenant Commander Max Robichaux and Dr Sahin, being very largely inspired by Patrick O'Brian's duo (Captain Aubrey/Doctor Maturin).
    Again, this volume contains a rather high number of clichés or caricatures but there is also a large dose of "politically correctness".

    You get the cowardly, bureaucratic and incompetent superior who tries to (but of course does not succeed in) bully our Robichaux-action man and hero who will, of course, save his life, his ship and his whole crew for him. You also get a piece on "friendly Muslims" (beginning with Dr Sahin - the hero's best friend) from an association of planets similar to the United Emirates with one of their leading houses being called the House of Saoud. They will, of course, need help from our hero will, of course, provide very successfully.

    Again, the book is action-packed, with the whole story taking place during a month and a half this time (slightly longer than in the first book). During this short period, Max Robichaux and his friend, ship and crew seem to spend their time racing around the galaxy, blowing to bits enemy ships bigger than theirs and winning against impossible odds.

    There are a number of additional features in this episode.

    You get to learn more of the Vaagh, huge and hugely advanced four meter high fierce predators that look like koala bears.

    Book 2 in the series and I can't wait for the next one. This is a great follow on and perfectly complements the first book. The plot thickens, the bad guys are extra bad and there is intrigue and nail biting decisions to be made by everyone. A fantastic space opera, lots of exploding ships, heroic deeds, incompetent leaders and swash buckling adventure.
    That sounds a bit shallow but in reality the book draws on real history, naval battles and manoeuvres from both world wars etc. So is really captivating. Read it.... It's good
