Postwar trials. Lunch for the accused Chetnik leader, Army General Dragoljub Mihailović: mashed potato with pork, bread and cucumber salad. This photo by US correspondent John Phillips was published in "Life" magazine, in a report aimed at disputing various press claims and rumours of General Mihailović's out-of-court abuse, and showing that the defendant was more than well treated. According to the American magazine, out of court, the general looked happy enough, was gaining weight and could order to eat what he wanted.

Posleratna suđenja. Ručak za optuženog četničkog vođu, armijskog generala Dragoljuba Mihailovića: krompir-pire sa svinjetinom, hleb i salata od krastavaca. Ova fotografija američkog dopisnika Džona Filipsa objavljena je u časopisu "Život" (Life), u reportaži čiji je cilj bio da opovrgne razne novinske tvrdnje i glasine o zlostavljanju generala Mihailovića van suda, i prikaže kako je optuženik i više nego dobro tretiran. Prema navodima američkog časopisa, general je van suda delovao zadovoljno, dobijao je na težini i mogao je da naruči da jede šta je želeo.
