In summer 1945, the guns stopped firing, tanks stopped rolling, and planes stopped dropping bombs as World War II came to a close in both Europe and the Pacific. The United States emerged victorious as the only nation to successfully fight a two-front war, but it was done as part of a great alliance that included England, France, and the Soviet Union in Europe, and Australia in the Pacific.

Hitler had taken his own life in a bunker in Berlin as the Soviet Army assailed the city from the east and American and British forces moved in from the west. In the Pacific Theater, Victory in the Pacific Day, or Victory over Japan Day, was achieved on August 15, 1945, after the United States dropped atomic bombs on the cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki to force Japan to consider surrender over a costly invasion of the home islands by the Allies.
