SECOND JAPANESE CITY SUFFERS ATOMIC BLAST

August 9, 1945--Nagasaki. From the BBC.

Since Japan failed to surrender after the first atomic bomb exploded over Hiroshima on August 6th, U.S. forces dropped a 2nd atomic device on the city of Nagasaki. Days later, Japan would surrender and World War II would come to a close.

Next: The signing of the instruments of surrender on the deck of the USS Missouri in Tokyo Bay.
