2017 War Bingo Card

So instead of hosting another round of World at War, I thought I would still do a bingo card but expand it to a broader focus. Sign up in the comments!

Here's this year's card:

If you choose to accept this mission, your goal would be to read FIVE books and get a bingo.
Unless specifically stated, most squares could be filled by fiction or nonfiction. (I made an exception with World War I and World War II books, giving you two squares for each war). One book per square.

If you don't want to aim for a traditional bingo, read a minimum of five books to fill any five squares on the card, and it will count as a successful win. Or try to see how many squares you can fill in one year! You can replace the _ with an X or a ✔ (copy/paste it) when you finish reading a book. If you list the books you read, that may help other people decide what to read.

Duration: Since I'm posting late, how about a thirteen month challenge. January 2017-January 2018.

The categories:

_ World War II Nonfiction
_ Film or documentary about World War I or World War II
_ World War II Fiction
_ World War I Fiction
_ World War I Nonfiction
_ American Revolution
_ Free film or documentary with war setting
_ graphic novel with a war setting
_ award winning novel (adult, young adult, children) with a war setting

_ French Revolution (1789-1799)
_ Free Book Choice
_ Napoleonic Wars (1803-1815)
_ Cold "War" (1947-1991)
_ Hundred Years' War (1337-1453)
_ English/British war of your choice
_ War of the Roses (1455-1487)

_ English Civil War (1642-1651)
_ Middle eastern war of your choice
_ European war of your choice
_ African war of your choice

  • Rereads are allowed
  • Reviews are not required but if you do get the chance to review, please leave a link! 
  • You can create a reading list if you want, but it's not a requirement
  • If you do make a list, consider adding a list of five books you'd recommend to others

I'm in for this one, too! I read The Boy in the Striped Pajamas and The Book Thief last year, and now I want to read more war/holocaust books! Thanks for hosting
