Stubborn Buggers by Tim Bowden( Book )

10 editions published between 1899 and 2015 in English and held by 125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It made Changi seem like heaven. There was a place far worse than Changi-Singapore's Outram Road Gaol. Deprivation here was so extreme that there really was a fate worse than death. Stubborn Buggers is the story of 12 Australian POWs who endured and survived the Thai-Burma Railway and Sandakan, and then the unimaginable hardships of Outram Road Gaol. It is a story of how they dealt with the brutality of the Japanese military police, the feared Kempeitai, and it is the story of how they found a way to go on living even when facing a future of no hope and slow death. But Stubborn Buggers is about more than suffering and brutality-it is also a story of grit, determination, and larrikin humor. It is very much about the triumph of the human spirit
The way my father tells it : the story of an Australian life by Tim Bowden( Book )

12 editions published between 1989 and 2013 in English and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

THE WAY MY FATHER TELLS IT is a story of the joys and sorrows of childhood and adolescence, of falling in love, going to war and returning to re-establish a family life. It is filled with wry charm and self-effacing humour and is a wonderful evocation of an Australia now changed beyond recognition. "It isn't easy to reminisce, alone, into a tape recorder. Yet that is what I asked my father, John Bowden, to do when, in the late 1980s I suggested he should not only record our family history, but reflect on a life that embraced almost the entire twentieth century. Then in 1998, at the age of 91, father 'woke up dead' in his own bed, in his own house (which he never wanted to leave), not long after adding a postscript - a final chapter to his life story published in 1989 and titled THE WAY MY FATHER TELLS IT."
The Changi camera : inside Changi and the Thai-Burma railway by Tim Bowden( Book )

6 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In The Changi camera, acclaimed author Tim Bowden presents a unique record of one Australian soldier's experience of the fall of Singapore, captivity in Changi and enduring the hell of the Thai-Burma Railway. George Aspinall was a keen photographer and, even in the very worst of conditions, he managed to take photos, process them and so preserve for later generations the reality of incarceration. Along with George's own memories of those years, Tim Bowden has written a gripping and authoritative overview of what happened in Changi and on the Railway. This powerful narrative and unique collection of almost one hundred photographs combine to give us a raw and graphic account of just what George and thousands of his fellow Australians endured

It is a journey that spans two decades, that takes the reader from a treasured childhood in Tasmania to a new life in the world's most populous Muslim nation. Along the way the author travels from one end of the archipelago to the other, from the jungles of Kalimantan to the riots and political turmoil of Jakarta. When he meets and falls in love with Sopan, he must make another life changing decision

Identifying and assessing interaction knowledges, skills, and attributes for future force soldiers by Tim Bowden( Book )

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Developed in response to a U.S. Army Research Institute for the Behavioral and Social Sciences (ARI) SBIR request the Army Interpersonal Skills Assessment (AISA) battery consists of five measures designed to evaluate the interpersonal knowledge skills and attributes (KSA) that will be required of Soldiers in the Future Force. As the Army evolves over the coming years Soldiers will be placed in positions that require increasing interaction effectiveness. The goal of the AISA is to gauge the Soldier's aptitude to effectively manage interpersonal interactions and to identify Soldiers who may be well suited for positions where effective interpersonal KSAs may improve performance. In Phase II of this SBIR effort the AISA battery underwent a full development cycle including focus group reviews by senior Non-Commissioned Officers (NCOs) and pilot and field testing with the target population of first term Soldiers. The final activity in the Phase II effort was a concurrent validation where data were collected from 95 Soldiers and their supervisors in an attempt to determine the predictive ability of the AISA battery. The details of the development activities and the results of the validation effort are the subject of this report
