Further misadventures of Trapper John, Hot Lips Houlihan and Hawkeye Pierce, only this time in Merry Old England.
After the Korean War, Hawkeye, Trapper John, Duke, and Spearchucker Jones reunite in Spruce Harbor, Maine. The local characters are as fun and kooky as the veterans. This is the first of a series of follow-up books written by the author of the original MASH book. Very funny, it includes lots of Maine vocabulary in phonetic spelling.
Before there were the movie and the television series, there was the novel that gave birth to such American immortals as Hawkeye and Trapper John, Hot Lips Houlihan, Frank Burns, Radar O'Reilly, and the rest of the 4077th MASH--a place like no place else in Korea or on earth. The doctors and nurses who worked in the Mobile Army Surgical Hospitals (MASH) during the Korean War were well trained, dedicated, and pushed to the brink. And they were young--too young to be doing what they had to do. As Richard Hooker writes in the Foreword, "A few flipped their lids, but most of them just raised hell, in a variety of ways and degrees." Meet the true-life heroes and lunatics who fought in the Korean War, and experience the martini-laced mornings, marathon hijinks, sexual escapades, and that perfectly corrupt football game that every fan of the movie will remember. It's also a story of hard work and skill in the face of enormous pressure and odds. Here is where it all began--the novel that made M *A *S *H a legend.
Before the movie, this is the novel that gave life to Hawkeye Pierce, Trapper John, Hot Lips Houlihan, Frank Burns, Radar O'Reilly, and the rest of the gang that made the 4077th MASH like no other place in Korea or on earth. The doctors who worked in the Mobile Army Surgical Hospitals (MASH) during the Korean War were well trained but, like most soldiers sent to fight a war, too young for the job. In the words of the author, "a few flipped their lids, but most of them just raised hell, in a variety of ways and degrees." For fans of the movie and the series alike, here is the original version of that perfectly corrupt football game, those martini-laced mornings and sexual escapades, and that unforgettable foray into assisted if incompleted suicide--all as funny and poignant now as they were before they became a part of America's culture and heart.
