“[A] carefully balanced account of the predicament in which Balts found themselves…Mr. Buttar is himself an army veteran, and it is from the military perspective that he relates the savage unraveling of the Baltic world during World War II's last year. There's plenty here on weaponry, on tactics and strategy.” Andrew Stuttaford, The Wall Street Journal
"A magisterial account, Between Giants does not attempt to judge the decisions made by the leaders and the people of the Baltic States, who struggled to reconcile the situation in which they found themselves with their own aspirations. It elucidates the terrible destruction and bloodshed that had such a devastating effect on this corner of Europe, the consequences of which are still felt today."

"By magnificently mining and marshaling sources, Buttar potently recaps this tragic chapter in Baltic history. Serious students of WWII's Eastern Front should make Osprey's terrific tome required reading."
