Using React Router and <Link> not filling history

I’m using BrowserRouter in an React Ionic App and to navigate to specific components.

I tried to add a Back Button to the Ionic-Header → however clicking on the doesn’t seem to fill the history and therefore the Back Button isn’t appearing.

I think if you add a default href it will display regardless of the history. Hopefully that does the trick?
If not though I’d want to see the code that’s not working.

<IonBackButton defaultHref="home" />

sure, this works.

However it’s not what I intent to achieve - I would like to navigate one level back, not to the home screen.
