3.0 out of 5 stars Lonesome Road 27 Sep 2010
Rather battered copy, but gave a good insight into the background of the man who spent 13 years on a Georgia chain gang and was the Security Chief for the Great Escape from Stalag Luft 3 in March 1944.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Different View of a Familar Story 9 Oct 2000
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Lonesome Road is the autobiography of George Harsh. In it, he discusses his past in a Georgia Chain Gang, and through a remarkable turn of events, how he is released. After entering in the Canadian RAF, he is commissioned, and later shot down over Nazi occupied Europe. This is where the familiar story of "The Great Escape" comes in. Harsh describes, with vivid realism, his account of the mass escape from a German Luft-Stalag. His unique viewpoint, as a former prisoner, gives the reader the feeling of futility in the whole escape endeavor. A must read for fans of both the novel "The Great Escape" and the movie of the same name.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating story 31 Mar 2000
By Rachel Gray - Published on Amazon.com
The interesting thing about George Harsh is that he wasn't an innocent man. As a teenager he took part in a murder; then he served years in a Georgia chain gang. He got out in time to join the RAF, get shot down, and serve more years in a WWII German POW camp. His life was difficult, but he writes with a certain maturity that must have come from long years of hardship.

5.0 out of 5 stars Redemption of a Soul 2 April 2012
By R. Owen - Published on Amazon.com
The thing that rings through Harsh's book is the honesty of what he tells and of how he wasn't a perfect man but found the strength to lift himself above what had happened and to redeem himself and his soul. This is a book that should be reprinted and released.
