Japan Surrenders

Filed under: Posts — clgood @ 15:52

OK, so it’s not late-breaking news. The claim is that this newsreel, which includes audio from General MacArthur, has not been shown publicly before. I don’t recall seeing it, but I have my doubts as to that claim. In any case it’s quite the historic document. History buffs will enjoy it.

  1. I have seen a number of newsreel shots of this surrender, but do not recall seeing anything like this one, on History Channel etc.
    Did you notice how gaunt poor Gen. Wainright looks?
