"Korea, 1950. They were the 4077 MASH (Mobile Army Surgical Hospital) unit stationed three miles from the front. After months of living a stone's throw away from the daily bombings and dealing with the resulting nonstop casualties, the docs and nurses still managed to live up to their motto of delivering the 'best care anywhere.' The only things that kept the continued stress of war from turning these docs into casualties themselves were their own surgically sharp wits, love of laughter, and the knowledge that they were often the only hope for the incoming wounded."--Container.
