Best Answer

In the Pacific, the atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki that landed in Japan, set off by the US, were what ended WWII. Japan surrendured the day after the second atomic bomb landed.

In Europe, Alfred Jodl signed unconditional surrender documents for all German troops in Norway on May 7th, 1945. On May 8th, the next day, V-E day was celebrated (Victory in Europe).
