Mike Campbell served as an award-winning writer while on active duty with the U.S. Navy and as a civilian journalist and Public Affairs Officer with the Department of Defense. Mike retired from federal service in 2008.
Mike met Thomas E. Devine, author of the 1987 classic, Eyewitness: The Amelia Earhart Incident, in 1988. He was convinced that Devine, Fred Goerner, Vincent V. Loomis, Paul Briand Jr., and others were correct when they claimed Earhart and Fred Noonan died on Saipan after their disappearance in 1937. After 14 years of collaboration with Devine, With Our Own Eyes: Eyewitnesses to the Final Days of Amelia Earhart, was published in 2002 by a small Ohio company.
Amelia Earhart: The Truth at Last, published in 2012 by Sunbury Press, represents over 20 years of research and presents the most comprehensive case ever for the presence and death of Earhart and Noonan on Saipan, as well as their initial landing at Mili Atoll in the Marshall Islands. The book has been completely blacked out by the mainstream media, because the establishment remains heavily invested in protecting the legacy of Franklin D. Roosevelt, the father of the modern Democratic party. Were it ever to become known that FDR refused to lift a finger to help Amelia when she was on Saipan in Japanese custody, his already checkered reputation would turn to ashes. Make no mistake, the Truth can be found here for those who seek it, and the old canard that Amelia’s disappearance remains a “great aviation mystery” is clearly and emphatically exposed for the lie that it is.
In 2005, he co-wrote “The Atchison Report,” an extensive debunking of the notorious and false Amelia Earhart-as-Irene Bolam theory. This theory was first presented in the 1970 book, Amelia Earhart Lives. “The Atchison Report” was distributed to researchers at the 2005 Amelia Earhart Festival in Atchison, Kansas, Earhart’s birthplace.
Mike lives in Jacksonville, Florida with his wife, Nee, and their two cats.
