Unconditional surrender would give Japan total control of all the islands. But with tanks armed with flamethrowers stationed right at the tunnel’s entrance, ready to fire, Wainwright had little choice. “I was desperately cornered,” Wainwright later said. ” Wainwright accepted unconditional surrender. “That was it,” he said. ” As Wainwright was removed from the tunnel by Japanese guards, he passed hundreds of his men.

The Japanese planes dropped two armor-piercing bombs through the battleship’s deck. They also launched five 18-inch aircraft torpedoes into her port side.
