Angkor Vat is one of the great architectural monuments of the world. An abandoned complex of palaces and temples in the midst of the jungle, it is one of the most fascinating and beautiful works that man has ever created. At the time the book was conceived, no one dreamed that Angkor Vat would become world famous as a possible battlefield, that international appeals would have to be made in the hope of protecting it.
