it was amazing
Read in January, 2007

A well-written and researched account of Cambodia before and during the Khmer Rouge regime under Pol Pot. Combines the facts with the human element in a way that really allows you to feel for the people of Cambodia. Strangely enough, I also started to feel compassion and sympathy for Pol Pot himself, until I remembered that he was a murderous bastard.
