Probably. Although the two used were the only ones immediately available, over the next year about a dozen (If I recall) would have been manufactured. Doubtless Truman would have used them all up. Assuming even that didn't bring the Japanese to surrender, conventional invasion would have ensued, probably before the end of 1945. Compared to the two atomic bombs, the devastation from a wholesale conventional invasion would have been much worse.
Japan refused to surrender, because, it was against their national policy to surrender. Pres. Truman ordered the dropping of two atomic bombs and Japan surrendered. It was either two atomic bombs or invasion of Japan. Invasion of Japan would have made the war last another year, and killed a lot more people than the atomic bombs did.
The US and Japan were at war, and Japan had refused to surrender. If the US invaded Japan, it was estimated that more than 1 million US service members would be killed, and several million Japanese would die. Japan was advised that the US had a new weapon, but would not surrender. After being bombed twice, they surrendered.
Japan refused to surrender. Japan did not believe in surrender, and hated people who did surrender instead of dying to the last person. Pres. Truman dropped two atomic bombs on Japan and Japan surrendered. It was either two atomic bombs or invasion of Japan. Invasion of Japan would mean that the war would last another year and kill a lot more people than the atomic bombs did. Japan surrendered after Nagasaki was bombed, not after Hiroshima. It was either the atomic bombs or invasion. Atomic bombs were the lesser of two evils.
The atomic bombing of Nagasaki, Japan by the United States took place on August 8, 1945. The US believed that the dropping of atomic weaponry on two cities would shock the Japanese into surrendering (it did). The logic was "We'll take a few hundred thousand lives to save millions more". Japan surrendered a little over a month later, on September 15, 1945.
yes. many have overlooked that fact that the Japanese sent a memorandum to the U.S with their terms of surrender (practically identical to what the United States required except for the surrender of the emperor). Since their terms were in writing and signed by high up government officials. Japan probably would of surrendered without the use of the atomic bomb or soviet interference. Also, since japan was the only remaining member on the allied side during this time period, they were taking a lot of firebombings. So another question is raised... why would japan surrender over one measly bomb dropping. Another firebombing in japan previously killed about a million japanese.
Whew. Good one. Some would say 'yes', because it convinced the Japanese to surrender earlier than they would have. Had the Japanese held out and not surrendered until after a land invasion of Japan, hundreds of thousands of people would have died in the ensuing conflicts. The atomic bombs convinced the Japanese that they could be destroyed without requiring a land invasion.
To save American lives by hastening the end of the War in the Pacific. The Japanese would never have surrendered easily, and an invasion of the islands of Japan would have yielded many casualties on both sides.Japan would execute American prisoners, if we invaded. The bomb would save American lives. Japan was preparing for a long defense of its homeland.The United States was attacked without notice.
Unfortunately it was the only credible choice for the Allies in WWII. Japan did want to surrender (to surrender in Japan was to lose face). The battles for Iwo Jima and Okinawa were bloodbaths for both sides. An island invasion of Japan would have cost probably a million casualties for both the Allies and Japan. Dropping the two atom bombs was difficult but the only realistic choice for the Allies and Japan. Japan soon surrendered after Nagasaki was bombed.
It demonstrated to the Soviet Union that the United States had the ability to counter its armies in Europe, which were larger than the other Allied armies. Many Japanese people, especially civilians were killed. The US demonstrated to Japan that it had a weapon that could destroy Japan without sacrificing its own troops. Japan surrendered to the United States and its allies. Many American soldiers survived the war that would have perished had there been a manned invasion of Japan.
To create the atomic bomb before Nazi Germany could (if possible). Otherwize to have an atomic bomb to use on Nazi Germany in retaliation for their using them on England or the USSR (our allies). It was never expected when the Manhattan Project started that we might use them on Japan, but after Germany surrendered just before the Manhattan Project had a working atomic bomb, it had significant momentum, and it was becoming obvious how hard it really would be to defeat Japan the US decided that as fast as the atomic bombs could manufactured by the Manhattan Project's factories the atomic bombs would be used on Japan until it surrendered.
