William Craig (1929–1997) was an American author and historian. He was born in Concord, Massachusetts and educated at Columbia University. His first book, The Fall of Japan (1968), is a documentary account of the last weeks of the Second World War in the Pacific. In a front-page review in The New York Times Book Review, eminent military historian S.L.A. Marshall called The Fall of Japan "virtually faultless." See "William Craig (author)". Wikipedia.
