This man on the right looks like an European man. German adviser?

I don't think so. This man is also a Chinese officer, maybe a general

He's wearing Guomindang uniform definitely but maybe he dresses like that cause he is an adviser. I feel that he looks caucasian but maybe I'm wrong. I have another picture in which the 3rd man to the right also looks caucasian . His features look different from the other two chinese officers(?) on his left but again, I could be wrong. Another question also is who is this man in the second picture.

Based on the uniform the man in the 2nd pic is an American. Google translation of the following link: https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q ... QxzDxti29X would point to Chinese Expeditionary Forces in Burma as the photo context.

Pretty sure this is general Zhang Fakui (Chang Fa-kuei). The pic was taken on site of the ceremony of Japanese surrender in Nanjing, Sep 1945.
