The special included novella is average (which means quit good) Honorverse story, centered around King Roger and Elizabeth.

The rest if for fans and people who have lost their scorecard.

This book also contains ship class descriptions for both the Manticoran and Grayson Navies; including a limited number of Havenite designs representing captured vessels accepted into service. Uniform designs are shown for both the Manticoran and Grayson Navies also. An Order of Precedence for military awards of both Manticore and Grayson are shown. Limited color plates are included along with numerous black and white illustrations.
