The day on which Japan surrendered, in effect ending World War II. Surrender was made on the afternoon of August 15, 1945, in Japan but, because of time zone differences, it was announced to the United States on August 14, 1945.

August 15 is the official V-J Day for the UK, while the U.S. official commemoration is September 2.
