Reviews for most history books can be found in the JSTOR database, available from our Databases pages from the page for History databases. Type in some words from the title of your book, check the checkbox for "include only content I can access" (this is usually checked already) and check the check box for "Review" further down the page:

Click on the "SEARCH" button and look over the results for a review of your book.  There may be a lot of reviews for other books mixed in.

You can fine tune your search by putting the entire title of your book in quotation marks and adding the last name of the author in the second search box:

Be sure to keep the "Review" box checked.

If you cannot find a review of your book in JSTOR, try the America History and Life and Historical Abstracts Databases available from the page for History databases.
