Please ask questions in the correct forum. I'm moving this to "Reading Recommendations". Using a specific title for your thread, such as "Looking for POW stories", is much more likely to achieve results than a meaningless "help needed" title such as you've used.

Some fiction works include The Bridge over the River Kwai (see above), King Rat by James Clavell, and A Town Like Alice by Nevil Shute. They all heavily understate the true horrors.
Lord Russell of Liverpool assisted the Japanese War Crimes Tribunals, and tried to set the records straight in The Knights of Bushido: A Short History of Japanese War Crimes.
There is a long list of personal memoirs under Book References in the Wikipedia article "Burma Railway". To these you could add Betty Jeffrey's book White Coolies.
You could also look up Wikipedia on "Changi".
My old man was in Changi, and had a large collection of these books at one stage.
His take on it was that some of these books depicted the facts better than others, but none of them did so completely, because they were all written by survivors, and not by the myriad dead.
