From the Publisher
Annotation Based on ten years of research, during which Randall Brink brought suits against the government, interviewed key witnesses willing to talk for the first time, reinterpreted photos and technical data, and made forays into the equatorial islands of the Pacific, Brink meticulously supports his shocking claim: Earhart's last flight was for a mission of espionage, and she was captured by the Japanese and held as a prisioner of war.

Photos.
Editors Note 2 In this book, I deal only with the truth about Amelia Earhart's last flight, a truth withheld by our government because of a tenuous peace with Japan in the Pacific and concerns for the national security at home. . . . Those who knew the truth, and held it close, knew that Earhart and Noonan had survived. They believed it was their duty to hide the truth, and so they did. --from the IntroductionThis fascinating and revealing book is based on ten years of research during which Randall Brink brought suits against the government, interviewed key witnesses willing to talk for the first time, and made forays into the equatorial islands of the Pacific. He uncovered documents that provide strong new evidence about the circumstances of Earhart's last flight, and has used his background as a pilot to reinterpret photos and technical data that have been misunderstood until now. Meticulously pieced together is the shocking truth: the story of the Roosevelt administration's plan to turn Earhart's last flight into a mission in espionage, her capture by the Japanese, and her likely survival as a prisoner of war.
