Victory in Japan

2nd Sep, 2012 | Posted by in Blog

V-J Day commemorates the surrender of Japan during the Second World War, officially marking the end of years of bloody conflict in which between 60 and 80 million people perished.

Still, it took something immensely devastating for this to happen, namely the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki; prime examples of the destruction and slaughter we’ll unleash to end other destruction and slaughter.

To find out more about the Hiroshima bombing and first-hand accounts, there’s a documentary playlist available on the BBC Worldwide YouTube channel.
