"In the midst of a routine radio-teletype conference between GHQ officers in Manila and the War Department in Washington, the teletype suddenly began printing:
'Stand by for important message **** from Marshall to MacArthur ****you are hereby notified of Japanese capitulation ****'"
"Then began what was to grow into a world-wide effort to re-establish direct radio contact between America and Japan, severed since the attack on Pearl Harbor..."
What followed was a fifteen hour lag between the Japanese surrender and the time in which Tokyo heard that their offer had been accepted by the Allies, and it all centered on a bullet-pocked, bomb-damaged Radio Operations Room in Manila.
What if the Atomic Bomb had never been invented?
When would the war have ended?
