2020 Reading Challenges: History Nonfiction

History Nonfiction Reading Challenge
Host: Hibernator's Library (sign up post)
From the host: I will post a linky on the first day of every month so you can include any nonfiction history books you’re reading. The rules are not strict – if you consider the book to be history, then go ahead and post it.
