History Book List World History

I have been working on an American History book list and recently started getting requests for World History recommendations. I should have been recording these earlier, but it is never too late to start. I know I keep going back to the American History list when I am asked, so this will be my reminder list for world history Ancient and Modern as I find more books to list.
