Mac has written a number of stories about the war in the Aleutians, ranging from topics like the importance of enough fuel while flying missions, the joys and hazards of alcohol on base, and the aftermath of Japanese raids. All of them carry his colloquial style of story-telling and give great insights into what life was like for servicemen in the Aleutians - a blend of tedium, excitement, brotherhood and danger.
