Military History/Failure of British & American Intelligence 1941


Can you name a book that studies the failure of British & American intelligence in the  Philippine and Singapore to spot the JAP attack on 7 December 1941??   Or perhaps just Gen. MacAuther's Army G-2 in the Philippine??

There are 4 books I would highly recommend.  Each is listed below as is a link to them on  Some you may be able to get from your local library but most likely they will need to order the book.  The last book is very specific to your needs.  Also there are links at the end that may help.  The last link is from General MacArthurís staff.
Thank you
