Summary
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
