Pol Pot sounds like the kind of dish you’d order at a Cambodian restaurant – but it’s actually the name of one of the most horrific people ever to walk the Earth. For some reason he never makes it to the first division of truly maniacal, genocidal monsters of history… he’s always in the second tier, despite his own murderous efforts to make his mark. In his effort to socially engineer Cambodia, he killed more than a third of his people – and millions of bodies in mass graves are his grisly monument.
