The years of war were ended

by some marks on paper!

Left: U.S.Admiral Nimitz signs the Surrender documents on the USS Missouri in Tokyo Bay, as MacArthur, Halsey, and many others observe. Above: The Japanese delegation signs as American planes fly overhead, making sure that nothing goes wrong.

Surrenderdocument

When MacArthur accepted the surrender documents, he said, "Let us pray that peace be now restored to the world, and that God will preserve it always. These proceedings are now closed."

USS Missouri, where the war ended, is now anchored in Pearl Harbor, very close to the USS Arisona, where the war began.
