That's a pretty wide-open question Mark. Maybe it's semantics, but important in what way?

Depending how you define it, there could be multiple answers. Most influential as far as sparking interest in the uninterested? A case could be made for the old American Heritage book that kindled the interest of so many kids. Most influential as an overall narrative? Maybe Shelby Foote's trilogy. In-depth battle book? Coddington perhaps. Etc., etc.

Again, depends what you mean by important/influential.
