What is Rhodesia?

Rhodesia

Rhodesia ( /roʊˈdiːʃə/, rə-DEE-shə; /roʊˈdiːʒə/, rə-DEE-zhə) was an unrecognised state located in southern Africa during the Cold War. From 1965 to 1979, it comprised the region now known as Zimbabwe. The country, with its capital in Salisbury, was considered a de facto successor state to the former British colony of Southern Rhodesia (which had achieved responsible government in 1923).
