Unconditional: The Japanese Surrender in World War II
Unconditional: The Japanese Surrender in World War II3.5 2 5 Author: Marc Gallicchio Narrator: Eric Michael Summerer
Though this was the last time American forces would impose surrender unconditionally, questions surrounding it continued through the 1950s and 1960s–with the Korean and Vietnam Wars–when liberal and conservative views reversed, including over the definition of "peace with honor." The subject was revived during the ceremonies surrounding the fiftieth anniversary in 1995, and the Gulf and Iraq Wars, when the subjects of exit strategies and "accomplished missions" were debated. Marc Gallicchio reveals how and why the surrender in Tokyo Bay unfolded as it did and the principle figures behind it. Most importantly, Gallicchio reveals how the policy of unconditional surrender has shaped our memory and our understanding of World War II.
