Best Nonfiction of 2013

Usually I haven't read many of the books on these end-of-year lists, but I definitely agree with the Wall Street Journal, which includes Rick Atkinson's "The Guns at Last Light: The War in Western Europe, 1944" among the best. I read it last month, am almost finished with the second volume in the Liberation Trilogy, and will soon read the first volume.  These are the best nonfiction works I have read this year, along with Robert Caro's "The Passage of Power: The Years of Lyndon Johnson, Vol.4", and William Manchester's/Paul Reid's "The Last Lion: Winston Spencer Churchill: Defender of the Realm, 1940-1965."
