What Would You Recommend? - David Weber

This is a question I get asked all the time working in the bookstore: "What would you recommend for somebody who loved "_________"? (fill in the blank)" Usually I can come up with something, but that something can be a bit of a wild guess if it's not a book or genre I normally read. This is where you helpful people come in. If you have a suggestion, I'd love to hear it.

This week I'm asking about the author David Weber. His best known books are the Honor Harrington series, which begins with On Basilisk Station, but that's not his only series of books. He's also writing the Safehold series, of which book four, A Mighty Fortress, was just released. The next of the Honor Harrington books, Mission Of Honor, is due out soon too. He's written other books too, mostly military science fiction, but also some fantasy novels.

Typically, I've been recommending the books by John Ringo and David Drake when I get people who love David Weber's books, and sometimes the Vatta's War series by Elizabeth Moon. This time I'm also asking because I like the Honor Harrington books myself, and I'm hoping to find some other good books to read. So, what would you recommend?
