Then Japan really did surrender, on August 15. Yes. They waited six days after the bombing of Nagasaki.
Japan was ready to surrender in 1945, or so the headline went. Actually, they weren’t: Sounds like they never figured out what happened. No mention of the mess here.
The second atomic bomb struck Nagasaki August 9, 1945, three days after the first one. It always surprises me that it took Japan so long to surrender.
The immediate results of the atom bomb dropped on Hiroshima were censored by the U.S. in 1945.
