About This Quiz

Do you feel like you know more about Trapper John, Hawkeye and Hot Lips Houlihan than you do about the members of your own family? Think you could fit right in with the 4077 Mobile Army Surgical Hospital, treating patients injured on the battlefield? Take our quiz to prove how much you really know about the classic TV series M*A*S*H!

The Korean War sometimes gets glossed over in the history books because it didn't reach the scope of WWI or WWII, and didn't face the level of controversy associated with the Vietnam War. Despite this lack of attention, the three-year conflict took more than 35,000 American lives with more than 100,000 soldiers injured. 

One of the brave men working to save lives in Korea was a surgeon named Richard Hooker, who in 1968 wrote a book about his experiences on the battlefield. The novel inspired a TV movie, and eventually, a TV series called M*A*S*H. The show ran from 1972 to 1983 and was popular with viewers up until the very end. In fact, 77-percent of all Americans tuned in to watch the 1983 season finale of the show.

Since then, the show has lived on in spin-offs and syndication, as viewers remain captivated by the series' ability to mix comedy with an unflinching look at the horrors of war. This duality was most obvious in the some of the most memorable episodes -- like the celebratory feel when Henry finally got his discharge papers, which quickly turned to shock when his plane was shot down later in the episode.
