A comprehensive book about this subject is: THE END OF THE BRONZE AGE, by Robert Drews, Princeton, 1993. This might be a good place to start. I have it in paperback form with a 17 page bibliography on the back pages. The coastal cities of Crete were destroyed, the Greek city Mycenae was destroyed, etc.
