The Legacy of the Pacific War: 75 Years Later

Japanese surrender on August 15, 1945, brought an end to World War II in the Pacific theater and with it, the emergence of the United States as a Pacific power. Over the past 75 years, the outcome of the Pacific War still pervades in defining diplomatic, security, economic, and social ties within Asia, and U.S. relations with countries across the region. In fact, the memory of war has actually led to increased tensions in Asia at a time when there is growing competition and potential conflict among powers, large and small. In reflecting on how the Pacific War continues to influence competition and geopolitics in the region, the Wilson Center’s Asia Program has brought together a collection of essays as well as video interviews from select analysts and former policymakers from the United States and across Asia.
