V- J Day

Pacific Paratrooper

Remembering V - J Day Remembering V – J Day

THE STRIFE IS OVER, THE BATTLES DONE,

THE VICTORY OF WAR IS WON!!

When the news that Japan had surrendered spread, the rest of world gave thanks and celebrations erupted______

Most believe that it was the ultimate might of the Atomic bomb that ended the war in the Pacific.  But this is not entirely the case; the Japanese military were still firm in their belief that an Allied invasion was the “golden opportunity” and “divine chance” they had been waiting for.  Create must be given to” the Jushin, a group of former premiers, the senior statesmen of Japan, who worked behind the scenes and through the Emperor for surrender – They ended the war.”

_______quoted from Pacific War, by Saburo Ienaga
