Otherwise, Jacket, boards and pages are clean, unmarked, brightly colored, tightly bound and sharp cornered. Book Review by From Library Journal: "The popular television series M*A*S*H owes its historical accuracy in part to Apel, chief surgeon of the 8076th Mobile Army Surgical Hospital in 1951 and consultant on the show. Here Apel (with son Pat) expands on the themes common to the television episodes and familiar to viewers: the severe working conditions, the irreverence hospital staff often had for army protocol, and the insufficiency of necessary supplies. Apel outlines the historical and political forces that created these conditions and, ironically, the considerable advances in emergency medical care made during the Korean War. Although his work is heavily autobiographical, Apel draws from primary and secondary Korean War literature to provide statistics and documentation. Personal photos appear throughout the text. Well written and researched, this book provides entertainment as well as historical value and is appropriate for both public and academic settings. "

"For a variety of undergraduate-level history courses covering recent U. S. History and the U. S. Experience in Vietnam, including courses in military history, modern U. S. Diplomatic history, and courses on the Cold War and on Southeast Asia. This text provides a comprehensive narrative history of U. S. Involvement in Southeast Asia, from 1942 to 1975-with a concluding section that traces U. S. -Vietnam relations from the end of the war in 1975 to the present. Unlike most general histories of U. S. Involvement in Vietnam-which are either conventional diplomatic or military histories-this text synthesizes the perspectives to explore both dimensions of the struggle in greater depth, elucidating more of the complexities of the U. S. -Vietnam entanglement. It explains why Americans tried so hard for so long to stop the spread of Communism in Indochina, and why they ultimately failed."
