Unable to bear the suffering of his people any longer, and finally given the power to do something about it, the Emperor decreed that Japan would surrender.
Much work remained to be done: the Imperial Rescript had to be composed, the Emperor had to record it, and it had to be broadcast to the nation. And there were many soldiers and civilians who could not accept surrender, and would do anything even commit treason to avoid it.
In a single 24-hour period, the fate of 100 million people would be decided.
This is the true story of August 15th, 1945... Japan's Longest Day.
