On August 6, 1945, the city of Japan, Hiroshima was detonated two nuclear weapons by the United States. The United States becomes the first and only nation to use atomic weaponry during wartime. Approximately 80,000 people were killed as a direct result and another 35,000 were injured due to blast. Tens of thousands more died in the following weeks from wounds and radiation poisoning. Enola Gay, the American bomber dropped a five-ton bomb over the Japanese city of Hiroshima.

Japan surrendered to the Allies on August 15, six days after the Soviet Union’s declaration of war and the bombing of Nagasaki.
