they didn't 'help'. They defeated them. They dropped the fat man and the little boy on nagasaki and hiroshima, forcing them to surrender. This was the end of WW2 in the pacific.
Jnarajo is correct. Although the Chinese, British, Australians and other smaller countries fought alongside them, the Americans fielded the greatest force in the pacific
...and it was a little more complicated than "They dropped the fat man and the little boy..." Although it was the formal end, small-unit actions continued for years afterwards
...but did the dropping of the atomic bombs end the war officially by September 1945? Some would argue that as American forces [indisputably the greatest numerical force fighting Japan and with the greatest military machine] were already in occupation of Japanese territory and Japan was in a corner [ie the Japanese mainland devoid of long term resources to continue a defensive war]. The question of the atomic response against Japan is probably more complicated in asmuch as President Truman probably had is eye firmly on the new world order that would follow the end of WW2.
and by the way, the Americans did NOT defeat The Empire of Japan alone. There was a British and Commonwealth army fighting in Burma which successfully prevented an invasion of India.
the dropping of the atomic bombs was to scare the japanese, to tell them what they were up against, you'r right, USA didn't defeat them alone, but they had a lot of influence
Yes I believe the USA was the leading force that contributed to the defeat of the Empire of Japan, unfortunately this is reported in such a way that the other 'players' are often sidelined at best and simply unacknowledged at worst. USA also playerd a major role in defeating of Nazi Germany on the western front but put into context. The launching pad of the western invasion was England and in 1940 Great Britain stood alone against Germany's arial onslaught. The successful defence [The Battle of Britain] allowed for a future foothold into europe for the USA.
if it wasnt for usa, europe would b screwd, and sould would half of asia
USSR also joined the war against Japan by the end of the war. Although, they didn't fight. Mainly because USA asked for their support and because Japan invaded the Kuril Islands which is still a current issue. But to answer your question, it was the USA that played a major role in that war supported by Australian, Canadian and also British soldiers. And it is obvious that they ended the war by dropping a nuclear bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. In fact, if the Japan Emporor hadn't ended the war, the Japanese wouldn't have surrender. They have a very different mentality from us, in western coutries. And even until the 70s some Japanese that lived far from the main island thought that the war wasn't over. Then of course, you have some theories about the fact that the US knew about the Pearl Harbor attack, and that they didn't react because Roosvelt wanted to enter the war. Although he couldn't because of public opinion and US' isolationism. Moreover, the Irish and German minorities that lived in the US wanted to be allied with Germany.
they defeated in taking revenge
