There's the main line, following Honor. There are some Anthologies, and there are two sub-lines.

But you've a while to go until you hit these. There's a straight order of

On Basilisk Station (1993) ISBN 0-671-57793-X
The Honor of the Queen (1993) ISBN 0-671-57864-2
The Short Victorious War (1994) ISBN 0-671-87596-5
Field of Dishonor (1994) ISBN 0-671-57820-0
Flag in Exile (1995) ISBN 0-671-31980-9
Honor Among Enemies (1996) ISBN 0-671-87723-2
In Enemy Hands (1997) ISBN 0-671-57770-0
Echoes of Honor (1998) ISBN 0-671-57833-2
Ashes of Victory (2000) ISBN 0-671-57854-5

Then I'd put in the four anthologies, that have back-story, but also some lead-in to the other books.
More Than Honor (1998) ISBN 0-671-87857-3
Worlds of Honor (1999) ISBN 0-671-57855-3
Changer of Worlds (2001) ISBN 0-671-31975-2
The Service of the Sword (2003) ISBN 0-7434-3599-0

And then
Crown of Slaves (2003) ISBN 0-7434-7148-2 with Eric Flint

After that, back to mainline Honor for
War of Honor (October 2002) ISBN 0-7434-3545-1
At All Costs (November 2005) ISBN 1-4165-0911-9

and finally
The Shadow of Saganami (2004) ISBN 0-7434-8852-0
Storm from the Shadows (2009) ISBN 978-1416591474

Hopefully, by the time you've got through that lot, we'll have Torch for Freedom and Mission of Honor.
