Reviews and Comments

My Life by Albert Mair MacLean with Margaret Anne Hume is a memoir of a remarkable, unassuming man who saw his duty clearly and carried it out with humour and forbearance. The book, while written for his family, is relevant to every Canadian, particularly those who have no recollection of the horror that was the Second World War. Like my own father, who was a physician in the RAF, Mister MacLean volunteered for service in the RCAF, but as a pilot who flew Lancaster bombers. Of the 125,000 aircrew who served 55,573 were killed. Eighteen percent of these were Canadian. To read My Life is to pay homage to everyone. Patrick Taylor, NY Times best-selling novelist.
