Actually it's almost the middle of April but I thought it would be good to start a thread of what everyone is reading each month. Janelle had started something similar in a weekly format. So, tell us, what are you reading this month in the History genre?

After all of the great recs on the Russian History thread, I'm starting Nicholas and Alexandra by Robert Massie this week!

Mark Twain: An Illustrative Biography by Geoffrey C.Ward

 

I thought it was going to be a typical coffee-table book but it is really good. It has alot of detail without being a trivia-type book.

First time on this forum!  I'm rereading UTAH BEACH by Joseph Balkoski.  I love his WWII books; he packs his books with interesting stories from the top down to the individual.
