    Description
    'In August 1981 my bag was packed for my fifth visit to Panama when the news came to me over the telephone of the death of General Omar Torrijos Herrera, my friend and host . . . At that moment the idea came to me to write a short personal memoir . . . of a man I had grown to love over those five years.'

    Graham Greene's account of a five-year personal involvement with Omar Torrijos, ruler of Panama from 1968-81, and Sergeant Chuchu, one of the few men in the National Guard whom the General trusted completely. It is a fascinating tribute to an inspirational politician in the vital period of his country's history, and to an unusual and enduring friendship.
