The tumultuous months between the fall of Germany in May 1945 and the surrender of Japan in August would shape the world for generations. Combining archive material and new interviews with eyewitnesses, this people's history tells the story of civilians, soldiers, victor and vanquished across the globe during that fateful summer, as they celebrated in London; battled the Japanese; witnessed the election of Attlee's reforming Labour government; saw the descent of the Iron Curtain; and heard testimony from survivors of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
