"At last, the definitive book on what happened to Amelia Earhart. We rate this four stars."
The popular and widely accepted myth that the disappearance of Amelia Earhart and Fred Noonan in the Central Pacific during their ill-fated world flight attempt in July 1937 remains among the 20th century’s greatest mysteries is false, the result of a decades-long U.S. government disinformation program that continues to this day.
My second book on the Earhart matter, Amelia Earhart: The Truth at Last, presents many stunning new findings, eyewitness accounts and analysis, and never-before-published revelations from unimpeachable sources including famed U.S. military generals and iconic San Francisco newsman Fred Goerner's files that reveal the truth about Amelia Earhart's death on Saipan, as well as the sacred-cow status of this matter within the U.S. government. Truth at Last explodes the popular myths that Amelia Earhart’s Electra, NR 16020 crashed and sank in the waters off Howland Island on July 2, 1937, or landed on the reef of Nikumaroro Island, where the supposedly hapless fliers perished soon thereafter of thirst and/or starvation. Unlike many Earhart treatments, Truth at Last is a serious book, thoroughly researched and documented to stand up to the scrutiny, skepticism and even contempt it will surely attract.
In 1991, having studied the work of Thomas E. Devine, the late author of Eyewitness: The Amelia Earhart Incident (Renaissance House, 1988), Goerner, Paul Briand Jr., Vincent V. Loomis and others, I visited Devine at his West Haven, Connecticut home. When I left, I was certain that Earhart and Noonan had died in Japanese captivity on Saipan, and that the U.S. government is still determined to deny that fact. After fourteen years of correspondence and collaboration with Devine, other Saipan veterans and experts from the innermost circles of Earhart research, With Our Own Eyes: Eyewitnesses to the Final Days of Amelia Earhart was published in 2002 by a small Ohio company, Lucky Press, as some of you know.
Though poorly marketed, With Our Own Eyes was well received by many within the Earhart research community. Four years after its publication, armed with many new findings and insights, I began writing Truth at Last, which makes a far more compelling case for the famed aviatrix’s presence and death on Saipan -- a fact that flies directly in the face of accepted establishment doctrine. Because the truth about the fliers' deaths on Saipan is an anathema to our government's longstanding political agenda, the establishment will not be forced to recognize this book's existence without the support of people like you, Americans who are sick of being deceived by this government at every turn, and who are unafraid to demand the truth. Amelia Earhart and Fred Noonan deserve much better than to have their fates relegated to the dustbin of alleged historical "mysteries," never to see the light of day. Truth at Last might well be their last best chance for historical vindication.
Now, upon the 75th anniversary of Amelia Earhart's last flight -- and the government-controlled media's disinformation and misdirection that will certainly accompany it -- I respectfully ask for your kind support of Amelia Earhart: The Truth at Last. The cause is just and the time is getting very late.
