The 2021 World War II Reading Challenge

Well, I have found one new 2021 reading challenge to join!  This year I did Russian literature/history (and not nearly enough of it; my pile is still tall), and now I shall do the World War II Reading Challenge at Becky's Book Reviews.  I have quite a tall stack of WWII books too.  They mostly cover Europe, from the UK to the USSR.

I don't know if this is the official image or not
