Japan is surrendering in World War 2.
No! This is terrible!
We are hungry
I am General MacArthur and I am here to reform Japan on behalf of SCAP.
We will rebuild in 3 main different stages.
When Emperor Hirohito decided Japan was going to surrender, many people were devastated.
I hope I am not considered to have committed a war crime!
After WWII, most of Japan’s large cities, industries and transportation were very damaged. This resulted in an extreme food shortage for a couple years.
Here you go.
Thanks to the Korean War, our economy will be saved!!
General Douglas A. MacArthur played a large part in rebuilding Japan through SCAP. There were three main phases of Japan’s reconstruction: reforms, economy, and a formal peace treaty.
I am glad we signed that treaty.
Phase 1: War crime trials were held and all former military officers were banned from being allowed to have a political role in Japan.
Phase 2: Japan's economy was able to grow thanks to Korea. Japan took supplies and raw materials from Korea and sold them to UN forces who needed it during the Korean War.
Phase 3: A formal peace treaty was created and signed in San Francisco.
