17 April 1975. The date sends a chill down the spine of most Cambodians. It was the start of a nightmare that was to continue for almost four years at the hands of the brutal Khmer Rouge.
Photographer Roland Neveu was one of the few foreigners who stayed behind when most of the press corps left the country as part of US evacuation operation Eagle Pull. The few 35-mm films which he shot that day are some of the only remaining images of that time. He was lucky enough to be able to take them out of the country after his forced sojourn in the French Embassy compound. This book takes you to Phnom Penh on that fateful day.
The publication Traversing The Orient features a number of pictures from the book (http://mag.ttoasia.net/roland-neveu-fall-phnom-penh/)
