The Road past Mandalay, IIRC, deals with the chindits actionswikipedia- chindits, a long range raiding group who went far behind the Japanese lines in Burma.

You're right, some of the things they did, such as the executing their own wounded to prevent caputure do defy believe. Problem is, there's no way to make it without having the Japanese as a ruthless enemy. It also brings up th eissue of Burma, and its rather nasty millitary dictaitorship

Also, is no way to make 90% of the cast American. They were British, Indian and Nepalese.

good story, just unfilmable at the moment...
