1) "As with many of the videos
floating around, dealing with Rhodesia and its bush war, I was expecting
to watch some scratchy, pirated footage with gung-ho, blood 'n guts
non-stop action. I was wrong...
"I've just finished watching "The
Final Chapter". It is breathtaking and had me absolutely absorbed! The
intro montage is amazing and I had to re-wind several times to look
at it again. What I particularly enjoyed about the documentary is
that it is precise and no bullshit - succinct and direct. The narrator is
excellent. Powerful stuff!"
3) "Like Rhodesia itself, Viscounts 'Hunyani' and 'Umniati' were doomed,
victims of a world that didn't care: a world that ? perhaps
uncomfortably ? turned its head away from the horrors of terrorism
taking place in a little corner of Africa. But for the survivors, the
next of kin and those who were there, they could not look the other way.
Over three decades later, heartache and anguish undoubtedly linger, as
does a sense of bitterness and futility. This gut-wrenching documentary
is clearly of historical importance, but it's more than that: it's a
testament to the victims, those so cruelly murdered, and a nod to the
handful of survivors that you are not forgotten."

have watched this DVD and it is one of the most riveting documentaries I
have seen. The main feature is 45 minutes long with an additional
interview with Keith Nell who is writing the book by the same title.
There is historic footage along with modern interviews. Msasa
Enterprises who made this DVD are to be commended for their truly
professional finished product.
I showed a section of the DVD one night at the Garrison Club in Tauranga.
The audience consisted of Kiwis and Rhodesians. They were all stunned.
Never before has Rhodesiaॱuivalent of America11 been shown this
way. It is a fitting memorial to those who were murdered by terrorists
on the two Viscounts and is a piece of history that must not be

videos produced by Msasa Enterprises will provoke much nostalgia and pride
for all Rhodesians, particularly those who served in the Rhodesian
Security Forces. A most creditable portrayal of the various segments
which made up Rhodesia's Security Forces. In my opinion they are a must for all Rhodesians proud of

wise, the CD is excellent. In terms of its content, it's what I was
looking for - it's wonderful that so many of the Rhodesian military
marches and parade cadences and so on have been recorded. While I never
experienced Rhodesia myself (though my parents did), these discs, DVDs
and many books ensure that Rhodesia and the people who fought to make
her the beacon of democracy and civilisation in Africa that she was will
never be forgotten. Keep up the great work!"
"Just got the Cassinga DVD.
Excellent packaging and DVD quality. I really liked the skilled way the
live witness commentary is interspersed with the re-enactments. It's as
good as a movie!"
"I found it difficult to
believe (until I watched this DVD) that while bullets were flying and we
were ducking our heads there were guys filming the bush war. While this
DVD is based on the RLI, if you were SAS / Air Force / RAR or patriotic this
DVD is a must for you to get."

"Just to let you know the
two videos arrived safely yesterday. I have just finished having a look at
both of them and I must congratulate you on the quality of the picture and
sound. I had a quick look at my original copy of "Pamwe Chete" then yours
- it was like a snow storm had lifted! Both videos have been well put
together and I like the Clem Tholet song at the end of each tape. It is
certainly a wonderful record to have"
"The RLI DVD and book is the best material on
the Rhodesian bush war I have seen. I was specially impressed with
the color combat footage depicting the Cessna Lynx dropping
frantan. Any chance producing a DVD showing that raw footage from
beginning to end. I think it would be great. Again great job!"

"Msasa Enterprises has produced two videos
(Rhodesian Forces unique collection) relating to the Rhodesian war. Being
a sucker for any form of history, I bought the videos and found them to be
well produced and certainly worthy of being in one's

"Rhodesian Forces" is a

"I received my copy of Rhodesian Forces
1 today. Much to my disappointment I was never there. If I had have
been then there probably would have been a tear or two shed. Thank you for
the opportunity to look through a window into a world that I never knew
but wish that I had."
"We watched the videos last weekend with a
few pints! Brought back many memories. I was hoping for more footage of
the 'hondo', but what there was, was excellent. (Guess we didn't actually
go around bristling with cameras!). The quality was much better than
expected, and I recognised a couple of mates. Overall, an excellent
collectors item, well done!"
wanted to let you know the DVDs I ordered arrived safely together with
the terrific CD - we are so impressed with 'The Final
Chapter' - what great quality you have achieved from the wonderful old
film - so many memories and some of the history we have so wanted to be
able to share with our children! Once again many thanks
and good luck with the wonderful work you have done, and are doing, with
preserving the history of a special place."
"Watching the DVDs returned to those silent places of memories deep.
I was at the RLI disbandment parade. My late brother Cpl. Mark Kee
was one of the very proud soldiers to serve with them. I have
so enjoyed the DVDs and look forward to building a library, to share
with all who dare to have the courage to face the facts that we
Rhodesians exist and are proud to have the privilege to be who we
are. I certainly am!"
have just finished watching your latest video "The Final
Chapter". It is stunning. It makes all the other
videos on Rhodesia look like hastily cobbled together late night
newsreels. It delivers, with shattering impact, the feeling of
what it was like to live in Rhodesian days - especially the last
