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.
