"All the islanders," the report continued, "believe Miss Earhart and her navig-.tor, Fred Noonan, were executed out of sight of the local population. The Japanese were deterpiined that no American American would ever tell the world they were fortifying the Island of Sai- pan." Saipan was one of the battlegrounds battlegrounds of World War II.
