Welcome to the official website for the upcoming book "For Mother and Country - a B-29er's War"

by Trevor McIntyre


Sgt. Albert Preisser ~ Killed In Action 27 January 1945.
"He was willing to do his job even though he had to give his life. Thank God, we have men like Al. They are a symbol of true Americanship." ~ 25 November 1945.




They were called "B-29ers" - the men of the 20th Air Force who brought the WWII Japanese Empire to its knees with the greatest bomber the world had ever seen. Through airpower alone, they quashed the will of a ruthless and fanatical enemy, bringing an early end to the war, and preempted the need for a bloody land invasion that would have cost up to one million American casualties - all with a bomber that didn't even exist a few short years prior.

Now, nearly 70 years after the end of the largest war in the history of mankind, the stories of those men who valiantly fought and died aboard the Boeing B-29 "Superfortress" bombers are quickly disappearing as the final chapter begins to close upon the Greatest Generation. Their stories have largely gone untold - until now. "For Mother and Country" embarks upon one young man's emotional journey discovering the lost WWII legacy of the Greatest Generation, and follows his solemn quest to ensure the B-29er's sacrifices are not forgotten.

"For Mother and Country" is a reminder of the sacrifices of yesterday that gave every American the freedoms of today, and honors those B-29ers who never returned home to the country they died to preserve. These are their stories.


Sgt. Preisser's B-29 "Haley's Comet" - 497th Bomb Group, 73rd Bomb Wing - shortly before it was lost with nine of its crew over Japan.
