This paper examines the authorship of a portrait of Dragoljub Draža Mihailović, the leader of Yugoslav royalists during the Second World War, published in the earlier issue of The Historian. It establishes that it was penned by one of the British liaison officers at Mihailović's headquarters rather than Konstantin Fotić, the Yugoslav ambassador to the USA, as it was erroneously claimed in the title of that document and the introductory text. It also briefly discusses how the content of this document contributes to the historiographical debate on Mihailović, especially his (mis)treatment in British official history.
