I agree with many you've listed.  I just finished a wonderful work on
WWI, A Storm In Flanders, by Winston Groom.  He did a great job of
using his novelist's eye for detail to bring home the horror of the
Ypres Salient, while still covering enough of the "big picture" to
make it a legitimate historical work.

And I can't recommend highly enough Greg Palast's _The Best Democracy
Money Can Buy_.  A truly frightening work.
