The first landings made on Saipan were made at Charan Kanoa. The landmark of this once industrial city was the sugar mill that stands wrecked in the middle distance, which for many days concealed Japanese spotters in the smokestack. Securing Charan Kanoa made possible our advance over Mt. Topatchu, to the capital city of Garapan and on to Marpi Point.
