Check out this book by journalist Hector Bywater who tried to look into the future from the 1920's and predict the course of a "future" war with Japan. It was said that Adm. Yamamoto read the book.

The Great Pacific War: A History of the American-Japanese Campaign of 1931-1933 by Hector C Bywater.

Fascinating reading!

War Plan Orange, by Edward Miller is also an interesting read.

Another good one is Kogun: The Japanese Army in the Pacific War, by Saburo Hayashi, Alvin Coox. Hayashi was an Army General Staff officer during the war.
