(p.118) Chapter 6 War Ends in the Pacific
From Hot War to Cold
Stanford University Press

This chapter focuses on the end of the Pacific War in 1945 and the political upheaval that occurred in its wake. It discusses events in China on the eve of Japan's surrender; the Soviet Union's refusal to accept the end of the conflict without achieving specific geopolitical goals in Asia; U.S. Navy actions in Chinese and Korean waters; and American landings in North China. Because of the sudden nature of Japan's surrender in the Pacific War, U.S. and Allied occupation planning had been much less deliberate than was efficacious. In regard to China in particular, increasing American doubts about the geopolitical objectives of the Soviet Union on the Asiatic mainland complicated U.S. planning for postwar aid to that war-ravaged country.

Keywords:   Japan, China, U.S. Navy, Pacific War, Soviet Union, Korea
