Military muscle.

Recent Bar discussion has touched on the subject of Generals and has left us with a need to clarify.

The UK has 84 Generals, I who have worked extensively with the British military have never met, let alone seen one of them.

Cambodia has possibly as many as 2500 Generals, some of these I have seen and met.

This leads us to the reason why?

In theory it is the number of Generals required to run the army at the peak of the Khmer empire.

Or enough Generals to lead a campaign to regain said empire.

Either way they are there and a sign of Khmer forward thinking, we so lucky!
