    Enjoyed this small book version of the New York Times magazine classic article about Dith Pran, on which the film "The Killing Fields" was based. I enjoyed reading the book with its photos to see the real people of the story after viewing the film

    I found this book (a used copy) when looking for writings based in the Cambodia/Vietnam area--prior to a planned trip to the region. Honest telling by Schanberg of his relationship with Pran--the good aspects as well as the undue influence imposed on Pran when the Americans were pulling out.

    Brief but very poignant. I visited the killing fields and the torture prison in Cambodia and am amazed at the spirit of Dith Pran as a survivor of that horrible time.

    Killing Fields の元になっていたことは知りませんでした。著者の書いた記事をもっと読みたくなりました。

    Heart wrenching. Go to Toul Sleng...go to the "fields"...step on the bones and teeth. I've not been to Ausweitz, but this must be close.

    It was the postscript to the book/movie "the Killing Fields" it was Schamberg's personal Journey to find his most important friend, not colleague.

    Loved the movie tat was based on this book. This slim volume captures what the movie could not. A treasure.
