The Movie DB

"War isn't Hell. War is war, and Hell is Hell. And of the two, war is a lot worse." In the popular TV show, M*A*S*H, the characters were dealing with stressful jobs in the height of the Korean War. From chief surgeons to company clerks, what would your M*A*S*H job be?

M*A*S*H is the TV series that debuted in 1972. Originally the idea conception came from the novel MASH: A Novel About Three Army Doctors by Richard Hooker. While this novel was released in 1968, a film would go on to be released in 1970, two years before the TV show. Starring Alan Alda, Wayne Rodgers and McLean Stevenson, the series followed a group of surgeons and staff who were stationed during the Korean War. There were various jobs within the ranks. What would you be stationed as?
