On 15 August 1945, Emperor Hirohito publicly announced that Japan had accepted the Allies’ terms of surrender, declaring the unconditional surrender of Japanese armed forces. A formal surrender ceremony took place on 2 September in Tokyo Bay, Japan, aboard the American battleship USS Missouri, surrender ceremonies across Asia and the Pacific followed. With Nazi Germany having surrendered three months earlier, the Second World War was over.

While dropping atomic bombs on the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki on 6 and 9 August brought the conflict to a sudden end, this alone does not explain Allied victory.

Many factors contributed to Japanese defeat at the strategic, operational, and tactical levels: the vastness of the Asia–Pacific war; the Allies’ industrial and economic capability; Allied amphibious, submarine and conventional bombing offensives, along with battlefield and naval victories; and the limitations of Japanese resources, including those acquired through conquest.

This paper will examine how the Allies defeated Japan. It will address the “Conflict in the Pacific” HSC syllabus topic.
