This is book is a follow up to Prit Buttar's On the Knife's edge and begins after the battle of Kursk that turned the tide of the Eastern front in favor of the Russian forces. Retributions goes in to detail of the massive Russian offensive that forced a now desperate and shaken German forces out of Western Ukraine.

The author gives accounts of the many little-known battles that were constant throughout the Russian offensive. The this comes from the first-hand accounts are from the German and Russian soldiers that bring this to life.

I learnt so much from this book that I was not aware of and the information and writing really draws you in. The book is 480 pages and there are only a few illustrations, and these are battle maps.

It took me a week or so to read and with all the details I think I will need to re-read it to fully absorbed it properly. I loved the book and how much I gained from reading it in regard to knowledge of this period of the Eastern Front history.

Thanks go to Osprey Publishing for providing this book to review and IPMS USA for allowing me to review it for them.
