General Information
The province of Batambang has changed hands between Thailand and Cambodia on several occasions in the past few centuries. It was only returned to Cambodian control in 1907 and as recently as WWII the Thais cut a deal with the Japanese to take control again for several years. Before Cambodia's civil war Battambang was the largest and richest province in Cambodia, but ceded a large chunk of its territory to Banteay Meanchey for the creation of the new province. It shares a long border with Thailand and a short border with the Tonle Sap lake and is the fifth-largest province in the country.
