Emperor Hirohito's speech announcing the surrender of Japan, August 15, 1945. While an attempted coup and other drama followed this broadcast, the broadcast essentially ended World War II. This is the first electronic recording of the event, released by the Imperial Household Ministry in recognition of the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II.
