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

5 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 40 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
