Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Mokusatsu is a Japanese word meaning "to ignore" or "to treat with silent contempt."The government of Japan used the term as a response to Allied demands in the Potsdam Declaration for unconditional surrender in World War II, which influenced President Harry S. Truman's decision to order the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Mokusatsu was employed in the morning edition of the Asahi Shinbun during World War II on July 28, 1945 to designate the attitude assumed by the government to the Potsdam Declaration.show more
