W.E.B. Griffin is an American author who is best known for his military and detective novels in series such as The Brotherhood of War, The Corps, Men at War, Badge of Honor, Honor Bound and The Presidential Agent series. However, by the time he started gaining notoriety as W.E.B. Griffin in the eighties, he was already a prolific author under several different pen names.

“W.E.B. Griffin” is the most well-known pseudonym of William Edmund Butterworth III, who has been writing novels since 1960 under the pseudonyms W.E. Butterworth, Eden Hughes, Webb Beech, Walker E. Blake, James McM. Douglas, Edmund O. Scholefield, Patrick J. Williams and Alex Baldwin. Under these pen names, Butterworth wrote military novels along with non-fiction, young adult, racing and baseball and various other genres. Butterworth also co-authored the M*A*S*H series alongside Richard Hooker. As of late, W.E.B. Griffin’s son William E. Butterworth IV has been co-authoring his novels with him.

Below is a list of all of W.E.B. Griffin’s published works in order, regardless of pseudonym, divided by series:

If You Like W.E.B. Griffin Books, You’ll Love…

W.E.B. Griffin Synopses: In A Member of the Family by W.E. Butterworth (W.E.B. Griffin), a family’s beloved English sheepdog begins to show aggressive behaviour at random times, the family is left to make a very hard decision.

The Hunting Trip is a standalone novel by William E. Butterworth III (W.E.B. Griffin). Philip W. Williams III is kicked out of a boarding school at the tender age of sixteen for playing a trick. While riding the train home, he naturally wonders where his life will go now. He has no idea that he will become a world-class marksman and a special agent for the U.S. Army Counterintelligence Corps in postwar Germany, that he will be a key player in the defection of a Soviet officer, that he will then court danger as a courier for the CIA, that he will marry a ferocious Austrian ballet dancer, that he will become a famous bestselling novelist, and that he will meet the love of his life.

The Hunters is the third book in the Presidential Agent series by W.E.B. Griffin. Castillo and his team have been led to an estancia in Uruguay as a result of the growing UN/Iraq oil-for-food scandal, which has resulted in two brutal murders and millions of dollars that have gone missing. There, Castillo is shocked to find that the man they are looking for has been killed right in front of them. Who is accountable? Most likely, those at the top of the financial ladder who are willing to put everything at risk to keep their secrets a secret. However, they have left just enough of a trail for Castillo to pick up, and with the president’s permission to follow it wherever it leads, he ends up… well, not exactly where he expected…

The Last Heroes by W.E.B. Griffin is the first book in the Men At War series. June, 1941. Franklin D. Roosevelt and “Wild Bill” Donovan create the Office of Strategic Services, the most complex espionage organization in history, with the intention of ensuring that the United States will be ready for war. The OSS, a young and bold organization, gathers under the thin veneer of diplomacy to carry out their operations. And there is no operation that is more important than the one that hotshot pilot Richard Canidy and his half-German friend Eric Fulmar are carrying out: to acquire the rare ore needed to power the atomic bomb, a top-secret weapon coveted by both sides of the Atlantic.

    I just finished reading Hazardous Duty because I thought it was a Presidential Agent book. It is not. It is a well written book. There are some of the Presidential Agent persona in the book but the back stories are not what happened in the other books. I did read most of the book and realized that some of the main characters were completely left out or at least never mentioned. The medic at Shangri La did not bet killed he actually operated on someone who was shot there and did the operation on the table there. The person that was killed was not shot he was killed with a garot and was Seymore Kravatz. The Marine PFC used the sniper rifle then to shoot the head shots that killed the ninjas. Now since I have read that backstory I will have to read the others intros to characters because what happened in the other 7 Presidential Agent books may have been changed as well and the story may make more sense if I do know the proper backstories of each situation that may be different than the ones I had read in the other 7 books.

      Well the book cover does say it is a Presidential Agent novel, and the author lists it as one so we have to go with the authors decisions 🙂

        My cover does tell me it is a Presidential Agent novel but it does not tell me that the story has changed and is not about the survivors but about something else with the LTC being in this book but it was not a continuation of the story of the other books. It is a pretty good book but it is NOT a presidential agent book even if the author thinks so.

    I think “The Corp” is one of the best series ever written. Made me believer. Butterworth is probably the best writer I have ever read in my 85 years of life. Definitely knows his subject(s).

    I was delighted to find this list . I met Bill Butterworth in. 1958 when he was a civilian writer for The United. States Army Board of Aviation Accident Research (USABAAR). My husband, Capt. Archie Summers, was assigned there. We Have remained friends all these years. I consider his series, The Corps, to be one of the greatest that I have read in my 80 years of avid reading. Also, I happily recognized some characters from The Brotherhood of War. You cannot go wrong reading any of Bill’s books.
