The picture is of General Stilwell over Christmas Dinner in the field in 1943; not three years later in Carmel, CA, he would be dead of cancer.
For those who care for the story of the crabby anglophobe Stilwell as much as do I, this link to his diaries at the Hoover Institution will be a great find, indeed!
As one digs deeper, there will be found, too, his prewar journals as well and dating back to his West Point years.
