The Axis powers, completely defeated with their armies and industries utterly destroyed, incapable of any fiuther resistence, surrendered unconditionally. Michael Montagne Europe: D-Day put allied troops on the ground in Europe. The troops then marched across Europe, engaged Germany at "the battle of the bulge" (which was very bloody) then marched into Germany and forced the surrender of the military at which point Hitler (everyone assumes) committed suicide. The Pacific: After the Japanese navy had been effectively defeated, the Emperor refused to surrender in an attempt to force an invasion force to enter Japan, knowing that perhaps millions would die on both sides of the battle. The Emperor knew that there was no way that he could WIN, he just wanted to get the best terms of surrender possible. Allied forces wanted an unconditional surrender with guarantees that Japan would not again attempt to invade the islands of the Pacific so the Japanese goal was not acceptable. Japan had been surrounded, no supplies were comming in. Conventional bombing burned entire cities. There was disease and starvation and still the Emperor would not surrender. Finally, the President of the United States allowed the Air Force to drop an atomic bomb on Hiroshima in an attempt to force surrender. The Emperor still refused, telling his people that we could not do that again because we only had one such bomb. When the president authorized the second bomb on Nagasaki, the Emperor still resisted surrender, but finally, after much deliberation, decided that his people were suffering. Several of his generals killed themselves when the Emperor surrendered. The document of surrender was signed on the deck of a Battleship in Tokyo Bay. You can visit that battleship at Pearl Harbor.

The cause of the end of world war two was that the USA dropped two atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in Japan. And then the signing of Japan's unconditional surrender on the deck of the USS Missouri in August of 1945

Atomic bombs + Nagasaki & Hiroshima = Bad day for the Japanese, also leads to the Japanese signing a peace treaty with the allies. Russians on one side, Britts/Americans on the other Germany started to crumble fast. Germany's failure lead to Hitler's suicide (Fun fact: He killed his dog too) with Hitler gone the war was basically over.

I can tell you for sure that what ended the war between Japan and the United States was when President Truman ordered that 2 atomic bombs be dropped on Japan in Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The cities were devastated by the bombs. One of the planes that dropped the bomb was named the "Anola Gay".

WW2 in Europe ended when the Allies had a 'stranglehold' on Berlin and Hitler had committed suicide. WW2 in the Far East ended with the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
