Stillwell and Mountbatten, Burma, 1944

Here we see Lt General Joseph Stilwell and Admiral Lord Louis Mountbatten somewhere in Burma in 1944. At the time Stilwell was in command of all Chinese and American forces in northern Burma, and Mountbatten was Supreme Commander, South-East Asia, but the two men didn't get on, and Stilwell didn't trust Mountbatten's intentions in the area.
