PG Wodehouse could be added to Humor, even though he's British ;). I also want to 2nd the Travel genre, although this could be difficult to delineate. Would we include fiction or only non-fiction? Would these be physical journeys only?

Lessee - I guess it depends on how we define the category. All of the ones in the original list deal with war as war (with the possible exception of a few parts of the Iliad). Your list deals with war as a central theme among other themes (Reed, Carlyle, Ludwig), horrors of war and its aftermath (Hersey, Heller), war as means to an end (Reed, Carlyle, Prescott), war as crucible (Crane, Mailer). Looks to me like these all qualify!
I don't know about Forester's African Queen, not having read it.
I don't understand why you'd include Cooper though. Help me out here. :-D
