Caption on reverse: "U.S. air chiefs in Italy. Lieutenant General Carl A. Spaatz (left) and General Henry H. Arnold, Commanding General of the United States Army Air Forces, talk things over during a visit by Gen. Arnold to the Naples sector in Italy following historic Allied conferences in Cairo, Egypt, and Teheran, Iran. Gen. Spaatz, at the time this picture was taken, was deputy commander of the Allied air forces in the Mediterranean theater. However, President Franklin D. Roosevelt of the U.S., in his Christmas Eve address to the American Nation, announced that Gen. Spaatz had been named as commander of the U.S. Army strategic bombing forces against Germany."
