The date August 14th. 1945 President Truman issued a statement shortly after seven o'clock eastern time to a room full of reporters inside the White House announcing Japan's decision. Here's a clip of a B C's radio coverage from that date. We interrupt this program to bring you a special bulletin from the International news Service.
