    The War Museum

    The U.S.S. Missouri was the last of the four Iowa class battleships built by the United States. During World War II, she participated in the invasions of Iwo Jima and Okinawa, screened Task Force 58 during air strikes against Japan and served as Admiral William F. Halsey's flagship. U.S.S. Missouri is best known as the site where General of the Army, Douglas MacArthur, officially accepted the surrender of Japan on 2 September 1945, ending World War II.
