Admiral King supported the “leapfrog” strategy in the Pacific, in which major Japanese strongholds were avoided or isolated while strategic, less-protected locations were captured as stepping stones towards Japan. This strategy resulted in the defeat of Imperial Japan in September 1945. Following the signing of surrender documents, Japanese delegates start to leave U.S.S. Missouri. At this moment the sky is darkened by hundreds of U.S. planes. Most Japanese remained straight faced but a few raised their faces and opened their mouths.
