From ArtsMagic's "60th Anniversary Collection" comes this release documenting America's victory over Japan in waning days of World War II. On the heels of a devastating one-two atomic punch that leveled Hiroshima and Nagasaki and took the lives of over 70,000 Japanese, the country finally surrendered on August 15, 1945; marking the end of the largest war the world had ever seen. Produced to coincide with the sixtieth anniversary of what has come to be known as "V-J Day," this documentary compiles interviews from various individuals who lived through those dark days to tell the tale of the events that led to the end of the grueling war and marked the first time that atomic weapons were used in battle.
