These are the stories about Australia's hardest inmates, from Australia's hardest inmates: the true and uncensored account of life inside Australia's toughest prisons.'Porky Pig' stalks the yard, snorting and grunting as he stares down the prison guard. "Whatcha looking at," yells Martin Bryant, Australia's worst serial killer. The guard stays silent. Says nothing. He simply takes one step towards the monster, now fat, bald and broken. Bryant - who killed 35 people and injured another 23 at Port Arthur in 1996 - is a 160 kg slob who trades Mars Bars for protection in Risdon Prison. The secret lives of Australia's most evil men will be revealed for the first time, with Inmates going on the record to talk about killers like Bryant, Ivan Milat, Neddy Smith, Carl Williams, Mark 'Chopper' Read, Michael Kanaan and Lindsay Robert Rose. Nineteen years after Australia's worst massacre, his blond hair is gone, and so is his self-righteous smirk . . . but he is as evil as ever. Bryant has attacked several jail workers and has showed no remorse for the crimes that shook the nation. He is just one of the killers you will meet in Australia's Toughest Prisons: Inmates. He then runs to the corner of the yard where he crouches, cowers, and calls for help like the coward he is.

Over the twentieth century 35,000 Australians suffered as prisoners of war in conflicts ranging from World War I to Korea. What was the reality of their captivity? Beyond Surrender presents for the first time the diversity of the Australian 'behind-the-wire' experience, dissecting fact from fiction and myth from reality. Beyond Surrender examines the impact that different types of camps, commandants and locations had on surrender, survival, prison life and the prospects of escape. It considers the attitudes of Australian governments to those who had surrendered, the work of relief agencies and the agony of families waiting at home for their husbands, brothers and fathers to be freed. Covering several conflicts and diverse sites of captivity, Beyond Surrender showcases new research from Kate Ariotti, Joan Beaumont, Lachlan Grant, Jeffrey Grey, Karl James, Jennifer Lawless, Peter Monteath, Melanie Oppenheimer, Aaron Pegram, Lucy Robertson, Seumas Spark and Christina Twomey.

For months during 1943 there was no night in Hellfire Pass. By the light of flares, carbide lamps and bamboo fires, men near-naked and skeletal cut a passage through stone to make way for a railway. Among these men were some of the 22,000 Australian soldiers taken prisoner by the Japanese during World War II. In camps across Asia and the Pacific, they struggled, died, and survived with a little help from their mates. Their experiences became a defining feature of the war, just as Hellfire Pass was to become a defining symbol of what every prisoner experienced.Hellfire details the individual stories of those caught up in history: the Hudson bomber pilot attacking the Japanese invasion force on Day One; the prisoner of war who refused to be blindfolded for his execution, and another who coped with misery and death by sketching plumbago flowers; the man the atom bomb didn't kill in Nagasaki and whose homecoming helped change Australia.Hellfire was researched in Australia, Japan and across South-East Asia. It draws on 50 first-person interviews, ranging from former prisoners to an old Mon villager deep in the Burmese jungle, and from Singapore's Lee Kuan Yew to veterans of the Imperial Japanese Army. The result is a tour de force, a powerful and searing history of the prisoners of the Japanese.

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1841 edition. Excerpt: ... looking forward to my novel destination with all its precarious results, it was but with a pilgrim's eye, which read this moral on every passing wave, that for the soul earth has no resting place--no sure "abiding city: " but they who seek a home, where the heart cannot ache, nor the eye weep, must " press forward," through the waters of a world of woe, to the " prize of our high calling in Christ Jesus," in whom alone is "no variableness nor shadow of turning," and in whose blessed kingdom only, can be found the calm of an untroubled sea, and the "joy in which the stranger intermeddleth not." A four months' voyage is as the passing away of a world. It has its seasons of summer and winter, of calm and tempest; its conflicts with human passions--its making and marring of pleasant hours. A universe lives within a ship, but its good and evil seldom mingle with our after career, so soon are both forgotten. On these then 1 dwell not; but I remember well the bright and beautiful morning, on which we were early aroused to look upon the splendid scenery which surrounded us, as we passed through Bass' Straits, and opened before us as we entered the fair haven of Sydney. It was early in June, the winter of that southern clime, a season which, there, might almost realize the poet's fancy of an elysium spring. The sky was one cloudless canopy of ethereal blue, and the lights and shadows, falling in strong contrast over the rocks which begirt the bay, gave a rich finish to the magnificent harbour, into which we were so gently gliding, before a breeze that scarcely ruffled the waters upon whose bosom we were borne. Sydney could scarcely have been seen to greater advantage than at that moment. The landscape was illumined by a thousand sunbeams, and the...

Convict Sydney is a collection of biographies of the men, women and child convicts that were transported to Port Jackson between 1788 and 1840. It's not a compilation of the most successful or the worst offenders, but a medley of the everyday citizens that lived and breathed in Sydney town. Each character has been brought to life with glimpses into their personalities and their social lives, their hopes and aspirations. Their individual experiences offer a broader insight into the daily happenings of Sydney and the convict system. From Elizabeth Sullivan, who was known about town as the 'Fighting Hen of Cooks River' with her flamboyant dress and tough countenance, to Robert Sidaway who entertained local residents by hosting dramatic performances in his theater. We step into early Sydney as it was taking shape and learn about the types of work, routines, punishments, rewards, uniforms, marriage restrictions and so much more by walking in a convict's shoes. Convict Sydney also explores what life was like after the prisoners had completed their sentences. How they eked out a living and created their new identities in their tight-knit but ever growing community. Their stories flesh out the living reality. Thought provoking, sometimes shocking, poignant and often uplifting, Convict Sydney offers both insight and entertainment as we become privy to the humanity of each convict, the highs and the lows of their lives

Colditz Castle was Nazi Germany’s infamous ‘escape-proof’ wartime prison, where hundreds of the most determined and resourceful Allied prisoners were sent. Despite having more guards than inmates, Australian Lieutenant Jack Champ and other prisoners tirelessly carried out their campaign to escape from the massive floodlit stronghold, by any means necessary. In this riveting account – by turns humorous, heartfelt and tragic – historian Colin Burgess and Lieutenant Jack Champ, from the point of view of the prisoners themselves, tell the story of the twenty Australians who made this castle their ‘home’, and the plans they made that were so crazy that some even achieved the seemingly impossible – escape! ‘A stirring testimony of mateship . . . We are often on tenterhooks, always impressed by their determination, industry and courage’ Australian Book Review
