Honors Rendered - Robert Macomber (Honor Series, Book 11)
It is January 1889. German and American naval forces are engaged in an escalating confrontation in Samoa in the South Pacific. Warships are at battle stations. Naval reinforcements from both nations are on the way. The press in Berlin, Hamburg, Washington, and San Francisco is calling for national honor to be defended. At any minute, open warfare may erupt. All it will take is one spark. President Grover Cleveland orders Commander Peter Wake, Office of Naval Intelligence to clandestinely accomplish one of two things: either somehow prevent all-out war with Germany, or win it decisively at the outset to prevent combat from spreading worldwide.
