Article rewording and introduction of new material[edit]

I have tried to synthesise content translated from several Japanese wiki articles to clarify the different names given to August 15, and the historical events that related to the day, and within it's broader international context.

I found the "anniversary for the end of the war" challenging because there are several events refered to in the Japanese articles that have been considered 終戦の日. The 4 events listed are all considered the anniversary of the end of the war formally and informally. However that doesn't detract from what is commonly accepted today...

I hope I have improved the content without letting any of my own bias affect the content I translated from the Japanese wiki and please be bold if you think some of my work needs to be reverted or the likes. Dr.khatmando (talk) 15:33, 6 May 2017 (UTC)
