For an excellent account of the rescue of POWs at Cabanatuan, I'd suggest Ghost Soldiers by Hampton Sides.

The unit including Alamo Scouts travelled 25 miles behind enemy lines to attack the POW camp and rescue Americans held from the loss of Corregidor and the subsquent Bataan Death March.

With the help of Filipinos, the unit made its way back with minimal losses.
