Stubborn Buggers by Tim Bowden( Book )

7 editions published between 1899 and 2015 in English and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It made Changi seem like heaven... This was a place where the deprivations were so extreme that there was a fate worse than death. That place was Outram Road Gaol and this is the story of a bunch Australian POWs who survived the brutality of the feared Kempeitai, the Japanese military police unit that made the Gestapo seem benign by comparison. But Outram Road was not only a place of punishment. Here executions were also common, often by beheading with a samurai sword... Stubborn Buggers is more to this story than suffering and brutality, however. It is also a story of survival through grim determination and larrikin humour. It is very much about the triumph of the human spirit
The Changi camera : inside Changi and the Thai-Burma railway by Tim Bowden( Book )

5 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 115 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

Stubborn buggers : [survivors of the infamous POW gaol that made Changi look like heaven] by Tim Bowden( Recording )

8 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the little known story of Singapore's Outram Road Gaol and the POWs who endured it. '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 twelve Australian POWs who fought and survived the battle for Malaya, then captivity and slave labour, followed by 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 humour. It is very much about the triumph of the human spirit

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

5 editions published between 2003 and 2007 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The future force has defined the U.S. Army as it is expected to exist within the next 30 years (U.S. Army, 2001). The future force will be supported by Future Combat Systems (FCSs) that will improve the speed, maneuverability, fighting capacity, and survivability of the Army's combat operations. Transformation to the future force obviously requires tremendous advances in technology to provide the FCSs that will enable the future force. Just as importantly, however, the Army recognizes the importance of its Soldiers in accomplishing the transformation, both in terms of making the transition and working effectively within the new systems. This transition will require future force Soldiers to possess unprecedented interpersonal skills in order to achieve success in their new unit structures. The goal of this Small Business Innovation Research Program (SBIR) Phase I effort was to identify the interpersonal knowledges, skills and attributes (KSAs) required of the future force Soldiers and identify innovative strategies for measuring those KSAs in future Soldiers
