I have just read this book Three Came Home by Agnes Keith. It's about a mothers ordeal in a Japanese prison camp Agnes Keith married an English man who was Director of Forestry and Agriculture in British North Borneo, they both lived in Borneo and had a baby boy.The reason I bought this book was that my Aunt was a POW and was in these camps mentioned in the book.
I also bought the DVD but I found the book a lot better found I could not put it down once I started reading it.
There was a film made about this book in the 1950s hence the DVD not as good as the book, both available from Amazon.
A lot of Australian service men died in these camps plus many other nationalities, great book worth a read.
