    Oh, you will. Without revealing any spoilers, I can assure you that Nimitz is indeed a major character in these books. He's as important to Honor as Rufus is to Kim and Ron - maybe even more so. But, you'll find out for yourself as you read on....

    I'm just about half way through "Torch of Freedom" now, and things are getting very interesting....
    Although its focus is mainly on events surrounding the planet Torch, the events in this book are most definitely connected to those in the regular Harrington books, as well as the "Saganami Island" novels. It's all part of the military/political sitch in the Honorverse....
    (And I'm looking forward to "Mission of Honor" later this year!)

    My traversal of the Honor saga is stalled for the moment. The regional library system is taking its time getting Flag in Exile to me. I hope it will arrive next week.

    Ah yes, the refrains echoing from the Royal Guardsmen resounding through my ears will inspire me..........

    Of course, the disconcerting part is that the Red Baron shot Snoopy down.......and TWD knows how to fly a plane..........:P

    Be afraid - be very afraid....
    (The theme from "Jaws" begins to play, softly at first, then increasing in both volume and tempo while the droning sound of a prop-driven plane grows ominously louder in the background....)

    Jaws theme for a plane? I think Jerry Goldsmith's score for The Blue Max (1966) would be more appropriate.
