If Japan did not surrender on 15 August 1945, a third atomic bombing was planned. In this programme we examine how Japan's surrender was a complicated and difficult process involving a military coup and how America was reluctantly faced with potentially using the third bomb - but which city was to be targeted? And would it have ended the war?
When Japan surrendered all of the weapons stacked 4 and 5 pallets high on Guam were sent to Hanoi. I know this from reading about Col. L. Fletcher Prouty. He was an intelligence agent in the south Pacific. He also flew Chiang Kai Shek to the allies meeting at Tehran in 1943.
