Most of the doctors who worked in Mobile Army Surgical Hospitals during the Korean War were very young, perhaps too young, to be doing what they were doing. The characters in this book are composites of people I knew, met casually, worked with, or heard about. No one in the book bears more than a coincidental resemblance to an actual person. 1.

I love all of the MASH books. Didn't even know this one existed until recently so had to get it. Read all 13 of the other ones while in High School (or just out) in the 70's so when the movie came out it was great. The TV series is a collection I own also. Just fun with some serious overtones. War does that. We had Vietnam so laughing at the Korea War antics of a few surgeons and their support units helped relieve some of the real life tensions.

The MASH story continues after the main characters have left Korea and gone back to the US. I love the silliness of it all.

The book travels well. It seems to be an interesting example but that's all it is. Besides the first one created the movie and a TV series. The one before this one happens to be a good example of why life in Maine can be strange.

Hawkeye Pierce and a wacky cast of characters including Trapper John and Duke Forrest invade Crabapple Cove, Maine and the hijinks begin! A comedy tour-de-force for young and old alike, you will find it hard to put this book down once you begin reading. Enjoy!
