Japan’s surrender made public – HISTORY

In what would later become Victory Day, an official announcement of Japan’s unconditional surrender to the Allies was made public on August 14, 1945.

Even though the Japanese War Council, pressured by Emperor Hirohito, had already submitted a formal declaration of surrender to the Allies, via ambassadors, on August 10, fighting continued between the Japanese and the Soviets in Manchuria and between the Japanese and the United States in the South Pacific. In fact, two days after the Council agreed to surrender, a Japanese submarine attacked the Oak Hill, an American landing ship, and the Thomas F. Nickel, an American destroyer, both east of Okinawa.
