If you like historical warfare, try Gates of Fire by Steven Pressfield. Incredible book. Masterfully written and it gives an accurate representation of the battle of Thermoplye, unlike the film 300...
Also, consider the Patrick O'Brian series. I'll honestly admit I have no idea if the books are fiction or loosely based on real characters, but you would think they're non-fiction in any case. It's difficult to explain why here, so I suggest finding a plot overview and sampling the writing style. It's amazing down to the last detail.

Dear Mom: A Sniper's Vietnam
It's a really good book, written by a sniper that served in, I think, the Marines during the Vietnam war. It's all true too. So, I think that fits in the history category.
The Master of Disguise
It's basically the book that the movie Argo was based on, which was a joint C.I.A. and Canadian operation. I thought it was pretty good, despite a few "historical inaccuracies".
