Albert Mair MacLean chronicles his family history and his own life story. The autobiography,My Life: Adventures of an RCAF Flying Officer, Eaton’s Manager and Family Man, features gripping details of his service in World War II as a pilot on the Avro Lancaster Mk III bomber.

From November, 1944 to May 1945, Flying Officer 'Mac" MacLean flew a total of twenty-five missions over Europe with his intrepid crew, facing dire risks on many occasions. Fortunately -- could it be "Tall pilots are lucky?" -- he returned safely from war service to marry his one true love, Mary Fraser.

With warmth and humour, MacLean recounts his years raising a family, and working for the T. Eaton Company in New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, where he served as Atlantic Catalogue Sales Manager during the 1970s. Colourful accounts of overseas trips and community involvement round out My Life, which includes genealogical charts, more than ninety historic family photos, and a selection of wartime letters.

My Life was edited and co-written by his daughter Margaret Anne Hume.
