Full Disclosure: I didn't make it very far into this fic. What follows is the reason why
The concept behind Glory, Praise and Honor is an interesting one- Miho finally getting professional help for her issues. It's a good look at the psychological side of Girls und Panzer, as well as a fic that doesn't solely revolve around tank battles. The latter is a welcome change, since too many fics seem more interested in including the coolest tanks and making exciting battles than telling a story or developing their characters.
However, a fic about Miho's psyche stumbles on the most important aspect- Miho herself. Miho can be a difficult character for fanfic writers to get right, since while she's not the most confident person, she does have agency. Her decision to save the downed tank in the finals was most likely done with the knowledge that Shiho would disapprove, she transfers to Oarai over her parents' objections, and she decides not to do tankery despite the fact that the student council won't take no for an answer(and only changes her mind to do it with her friends). She gradually grows into her role as commander, becoming a more effective leader without sacrificing who she is, and even saves some of her teammates without sacrificing victory.
In this fic, however, Miho's psyche is far more fragile, to the point at which the Original Character psychologist suggests that she be considered emotionally compromised and stripped of her command. Her commanding a team is said to be reopening old wounds, rather than a way of Miho breaking free of her family's style and finding her own way of doing tankery. Some could argue that this is a way of showing the more realistic psychological effects of what Miho has gone through, but I personally see it as a way of weakening Miho to fit with the story the author wants to tell.
The OC is part of the problem, as he comes off as yet another in a long series of characters who exist to serve as a crutch for Miho, who'd already spent much of the canon series learning to stand tall and walk by herself. It also doesn't help that the OC in question comes off as highly judgmental and willing to push his values onto others, especially when told about how the Japanese views on family issues differ from those of the West.
If you disagree with my description of the above, or if that doesn't bother you, then the fic may be worth checking out if you're in for the long haul (332,143 words). If you're looking for a fic that doesn't bend Miho's character over backwards to fit the story, then you should look elsewhere.
