The Short Victorious War
THE PROLES ARE REVOLTING
The families who rule the People's Republic of Haven
are in trouble. What they need is a short, victorious war to unite the
people and fill the treasury. It's a card they've played often, and won.
But this time they're up against Captain Honor Harrington and a Royal
Manticoran Navy that's prepared to give them a war they'll never forget.

"What this country needs is a short, victorious war to stem the tide of revolution."
"The belief in the possibility of a short decisive war appears to be one of the most ancient and dangerous of human illusions."
