Reflections in 2005
The battle begins
A teacher takes power
An age of reform
The clouds gather
The overlord : the United Fruit Company
Advertisements for myself
Operation success
The liberator
The proconsul
The secret voyage of the "Alfhem"
The final countdown
Arbenz fights back
The longest day
The liberation
The aftermath
