Thomas Paine, Common Sense I can recommend. I think most of what you listed were made into movies. I may be wrong. Read some David Mccullouigh books, besides his early history of Teddy Roosevelt.

That was just a quick list of what I read in the last year or so exluding some of the lord of the rings wich has been an on going thing for a couple of years as well as the Game of Thrones books. As a full time student, finishing two different degrees, I don't have a lot of time to read for pleasure so it takes a little while to finish a series.

But here are some others that are on the favorite list

The Rising Sun - by John Toland
The Death of Caesar - Barry Strauss
The Last Generation of the Roman Republic - by Erich S. Gruen
Hiroshima - by John Hersey
Things That Must Not Be Forgotten - Michael David Kwan
Eagle Against The Sun - Ronald H. Spector
Embracing Defeat: Japan In The Wake of World War II - by John W. Dower
forgotten Ally - by Rana Mitter
Hiroshima Diary - by Michihiko Hachiya
Lost Names: Scenes From a Korean Boyhood - by Richard E. Kim
A Discourse by Three Drunkards on Government -by Nakae Chomin
Factory Girls - by Leslie T. Chang
Paris 1919 - by Margaret MacMillan
Hitler's Last Secretary - by Traudl Junge
Japan At War: An Oral History - by Haruko Taya Cook & Theodore F. Cook
As Nature Made Him: The Boy Who Was Raised As a Girl - by John Colapinto
John Adama: - David McCullough
My Dearest Friend: Letters of Abigail and John Adams
Masters of Death - by richard Rhodes
The Black Hole War - by Leonard Susskind
The Da Vinci Code series - by Dan Brown

..... and the list keeps growing every day. I have a lot of books that I really like but these are probably some of my favs from the last 4 years.

Hirishoma, and John Adams I can highly recommend from your list. Barbara Tuschman might be to your liking as well. And I always recommend Hemmingway. Ayn Rand is Great as well, Fritz Letber, and you can get short stories fan published for free. Look this up

Hobbit and Lord of the Rings are obvious.
The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by: Douglas Adams
What if? by: Randall Munroe

Now it gets tricky (need to look up the english titel of the book):
Millennium´s Rule Series (Thief´s Magic, Angel of Storms and a yet unknown titel) by: Trudi Canavan
Elven Series [German titels: Die Elfen, Elfenwinter, Elfenlicht, Elfenkönigin] (The Elven, unknown, unknown, unknown) by: Bernhard Hennen
"Drachenelfen" Series (No English version yet) by: Bernhard Hennen
Lost Stars Series (Tarnished Knight, Perilous Shield, Imperfect Sword, ...) by: Jack Cambell

There are some more but this "english titel got nothing to do with german titel"-thingy is anoying me...

David Morrell is easily my favorite author and one book I recommend from him is Creepers.

Warhammer 40k Hours Heresy for Scifi, there are 32 books and counting, they are my go to at the moment. I'm on book 5 and it's still holding together really well.
