Williams, Brian Glynn. The Last Warlord: The Life and Legend of Dostum, the Afghan Warlord Who Led US Special Forces to Topple the Taliban Regime. Chicago: Chicago Review Press, 2013.

Seeger, Studies 58.2 (Jun. 2014), sees this as an "insightful book into Dostum and his life and times. It is "[w]ritten in a clear and entertaining style.... Williams has not only superbly portrayed Dostum as a hero to his Uzbek people but also as a real person whose personal and professional flaws in part explain his relegation to a regional rather than a national role in Afghanistan."

Williams, George. "ASIO's Extraordinary Powers." Journal of Policing, Intelligence and Counter Terrorism 8, no. 1 (2013): 66-71.

The author argues that "the powers that have been legislated for ASIO post 9/11 are excessive, unnecessary, and, in many cases, unused. In addition, these powers cumulatively pose a disturbing challenge to the Australian legal system and Australian democracy, including the rights to freedom of speech and liberty."

Williams, Heather. Parachutes, Patriots, and Partisans: The Special Operations Executive in Yugoslavia, 1941-1945. Madison, WI: University of Wisconsin Press, 2003. London: Hurst, 2003.

From publisher: "Based on impressive research and new evidence," this history of SOE in Yugoslavia "argues that SOE actions achieved little military advantage for the Allies and exacerbated the developing civil war." She also examines "how rivalries among" the various players "influenced the future of Yugoslavia."

The author's "exhaustive search of the cryptologic archives ... recovered the basic story of the segregated cryptologic organizations -- including the previously unknown existence of a large office of African-Americans in World War II."

David Kahn, "Fräulein Doktor Revisited," Foreign Intelligence Literary Scene 11, no. 4 (1992), pp. 8-9, says Fräulein Doktor was clearly Elsbeth Schragmüller. Waagenaar, I&NS 2.4/178, concurs in that conclusion.

Williams, Josette H. "The Information War in the Pacific, 1945." Studies in Intelligence 46, no. 3 (2002): 55-65.

The author, whose father served on Saipan with OWI, details the OWI's efforts through broadcasts and pamphlet drops to inform the Japanese people, first, that they were losing the war and, at the end, that the war was over. In fact, OWI's radio station KSAI and a pamphlet drop "preceded by about 72 hours, the receipt of the [Allies'] official diplomatic reply [to the Japanese acceptance of the Potsdam offer with the stipulation that the Emperor be retained] sent through Switzerland."
