fyi, no rating came in with this review...
Will add, thanks for noticing!
hah, nah the info dump isn't just it being a first book in the series. or at least if it is less you then get holy crap political dumps from the People's Republic

though it's worse in the core Honor Harrington series than in the Honorverse subseries from the bits I've read (in particular I recall the "Crown of Slaves" series having a more active narrative with less info dump)
People can also find a few of the books free at the Baen Free Library (used to be more, but they moved more of them to purchase model, with an occasional rotation through into free... unless you get one of the hardcover books that has the CD with like the entire Honor Harrington library included as epub).

Thanks, that's very useful.
