Japan was a victorious country from 1894 when it defeated China, up through 1905, when it defeated Russia, up through the victorious EARLY battles of WWII. By 1945, it had been defeated. So, Japan went from nearly half a century of victories to sudden defeat from atomic weapons within a year. Japan's "affect" can be measured from those dates.
