Bottom corners lightly bumped. Remainder mark on top edges. Pol Pot was the Prime Minister of Cambodia. In 1975 Pol Pot's Khmer Rouge forces captured Phnom Penh, which he ordered entirely evacuated. Even the sick were wheeled out in hospital beds, and in the first weeks it is estimated that tens of thousands died. The ruthlessness with which he pursued his intention to return to “year zero” and create an ethnically pure, agrarian, communist state resulted in the deaths of one to two million people. Overthrown by the Vietnamese in 19 79, he led an anti- Vietnamese guerrilla war until he was repudiated by the Khmer Rouge and sentenced to life imprisonment (1997) ; he died the next year..
