There's no way Stilwell was a mere lieutenant in 1944.

According to Wikipedia he was just a couple of weeks from being promoted to four star general (see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joseph_Stilwell#Dates_of_rank).

Swashbuckler, the missed word "General" has been added. Thanks for pointing this out.
