Japanese leaders had always imagined a negotiated solution for the war. Their pre-war planning expected rapid expansion and consolidation, a possible conflict with the United States and, ultimately, a settlement in which they could at least retain a new territory they had conquered. [23] In 1945, Japanese leaders agreed that the war was going badly, but they were divided on the best ways to negotiate its end. There were two camps: the so-called “peace camp” promoted a diplomatic initiative to convince Joseph Stalin, the head of the Soviet Union, to arbitrate a settlement between the Allies and Japan; and hard-liners who prefer to wage a final “decisive” battle that would make so many sacrifices to the Allies that they would be willing to offer more lenient conditions. [1] Both approaches were based on Japan`s experience in the Russo-Japanese War, forty years earlier, which consisted of a series of costly but largely indecisive battles, followed by the decisive naval battle of Tsushima. [24] The Japanese surrender instrument was the written agreement that formalized the surrender of the Japanese Empire, marking the end of hostilities during World War II. It was signed by representatives of the Empire of Japan, the United States of America, the Republic of China, the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, the Commonwealth of Australia, the Dominion of Canada, the Provisional Government of the French Republic, the Kingdom of the Netherlands and the Dominion of New Zealand.
