After reading the end of the synopsis of this book, I got my copy out and looked at the end of it. I do not see where it says about the Alliance occupying Masada. Is this is a later book and I missed the passage? Cosumel (talk) 13:22, 27 June 2008 (UTC)
Really, it was an easy fix. The original author clearly conflated the asteroid base with a misremembered occupation of Masada. In fact no such invasion took place - Grayson had no desire to occupy Masada and just wanted the Naval superiority to be left alone with their task of making their own homeworld livable.
I snipped the Masada occupation piece, after checking that the important section on the POW atrocities inflicted by the Masadan's at Blackbird base were included in the correct place of the plot synopsis. They were. Apolloin (talk) 07:24, 19 July 2011 (UTC)
Agreed. How the second book in a series as large as the Harrington books - never mind a continuum the size of the Honorverse cannot be deemed notable within the field of Science Fiction literature is a bit of a puzzle to me. Apolloin (talk) 07:28, 19 July 2011 (UTC)
