One of the most ruthless and twisted dictators of all time, Pol Pot came to power by seizing control of his destabilized country with the goal of transforming Cambodia into an agricultural based communist commune. Instead, he bloodied his hands with the genocide of 2 million people during his three-year reign of terror, slaughtering all who opposed him and forcing his population to work in slave labor camps, known as the "killing fields."
