“Cambodia Year Zero, Road to Khmer Rouge Killing Machine”, is an English translation of Francois Ponchaud’s 1977 account of the Khmer Rouge capture of Phnom Penh, and the testimonies he collected subsequently from Cambodian refugees who escaped the Democratic Kampuchea. A spine-chilling book, no fun to read, by someone who lived in Cambodia in the 10 years before the Khmer Rouge victory, initially believed in the Khmer Rouge, but comes to the conclusion that he was wrong. He describes the methodical approach to genocide, exterminating everything that was associated with the old regime, immediately after the take-over (well before the Khmer Rouge started purging their own ranks).
