M*a*s*h Vietnam: what its like to be a war nurse
M*A*S*H Vietnam shows how one young nurse survived the day-to-day drama in a Mobile Army Surgical Hospital in South Vietnam. Dealt in a frank, no-holds-barred tone, the book uncovers the operations of a MASH unit in a combat zone and the bleak hardships of war. This story is not so much about a war but about a regular nurse who followed her passion, her desire to do good, into the middle of a war zone, and her mixed emotions going home to a country torn by an unpopular war, uncertain how she will be treated and even uncertain how she will relate to family and friends. This firsthand, behind-the-scenes account of what Vietnam was really like in the middle of war is memorable, informative, and ought to be required reading for everyone in our war-prone world.
