Storyline

Four days AFTER the second atomic bomb was dropped on Nagasaki; American airmen are flying the last and longest bombing mission of the war. In Tokyo, a fanatical group of Japanese officers stage a daring coup d'etat in an effort to prolong the war. As the rebels take over Japan's Imperial Palace, and with it - Emperor Hirohito; radio operator Jim Smith and the men of the 315th Bomb Wing are facing their own dangers in the sky above Japan. In a development not anticipated by generals or world leaders - the Last Mission and the coup d'etat converge, helping to bring an end to the most destructive war the world has ever known.

Excellent report of the way WWII really ended and why.
13 July 2003 | by (Sylva, NC) – See all my reviews

This documentary was well done and was long overdue. Most people think that WWII ended with the dropping of the second atomic bomb. This was not the case, as those of us who were there and took part in the last bombing mission of the mainland of Japan have known for the last (almost) 60 years. Now that this movie has brought attention, in an accurate and exciting way, to what really happened, those of us who were there can breathe a sigh of relief. Our important part in bringing this war to an end is no longer hidden from history by two great mushroom clouds.
