Publishers Description: There was a place far worse than Changi - this is the little known story of Singapores Outram Road and the POWs who endured it. It made Changi seem like heaven.There was a place far worse than Changi - Singapores 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 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 humour. It is very much about the triumph of the human spirit.
