Victory In Japan Day

Victory over Japan would come at a heavy price, and Victory In Japan Day (VJ Day) marks the day Japan surrendered on the 15 August 1945, which in effect ended the Second World War.

Whilst VE Day marked the end of the war in Europe in May 1945, many thousands of Armed Forces personnel were still involved in bitter fighting in the Far East.

Japan surrendered on August 14/15 (depending on the time zone), 1945, which is why in many countries this date is observed as Victory over Japan Day.
