Transcript of Japanese Surrender
On Monday the 6th of August, ‘Enola Gay’ a B-29 bomber piloted by American Colonel Paul W. Tibbets took off from the island of Tinian.
‘Enola Gay’ was carrying an atomic bomb named ‘Little Boy’ and its target was the city of Hiroshima, Japan.
When the plane was directly above its target it dropped the twenty thousand tonne bomb on an important military centre containing 43,000 soldiers.
The bomb mushroomed and wiped out most of Hiroshima killing over 140,000 people. Nagasaki Three days later another atomic bomb named ‘’Fat Man’’ was dropped on the city of Nagasaki.
The original target for Fat Man was Kokura which was protected by a cloud cover the Americans could not see through it so they moved on to the nearest city , Nagasaki.
Nagasaki also had a cloud cover but Captain Kermit K. Beahan caught sight of the city’s stadium and dropped the bomb.
Fat Man killed 80,000 people; the results of these bombs were not pretty.
15–20% died from injuries or the combined effects of flash burns, trauma, and radiation burns.
Since then more have died of leukemia or cancer. “The bomb was not only dropped on the citizens of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. It was dropped on the whole humanity.” Satoru Konishi On the fifteenth of August 1945 Japan were forced to surrender as they had no army because of these bombs.
Japan officially signed the instrument of surrender on the second of September ending the Pacific war therefore World War II Surrender! World War II burns victim damage
