I thought Rising Sun/Falling Skies was a well researched and balanced coverage of the opening of the Pacific War. Cox seems to take a pretty even approach, mixing in accounts from both sides. His bibliography runs from immediately post war to fairly recent scholarship. I thought he treated the Dutch leadership very fairly. He's no fan of MacArthur, either.
