520 |a 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.
