Here is a documentary made in 1976. It was a few years before the end of White minority rule. In it the Whites that lived there saw it as their land rather than the so called "Mother Country" the UK. Even though there was a war there it was still quite comfortable for Whites to live there and the standard of living for Whites would have been one of the highest in the world.

The Blacks were much poorer but even so every black child had access to a school and everyone in the country had access to free medical aid unlike just about the of the rest of Africa at that time. Even so there was oppression yet the oppression was not unique for Africa.

I will come back to this in the PM when I have more time. I am very interested. Rhodesia fascinates me, I guess because it is so beautiful.
