Commander in Chief of the Pacific Fleet Fleet Admiral Chester W. Nimitz, said at the Washington Monument on October 5, 1945: “The Japanese had, in fact, already sued for peace before the atomic age was announced to the world with the destruction of Hiroshima and before the Russian entry into the war…The atomic bomb played no decisive part, from a purely military standpoint, in the defeat of Japan.”
