Discover Joseph Heller's hilarious and tragic satire on military madness, and the tale of one man's efforts to survive it.
It’s the closing months of World War II and Yossarian has never been closer to death. Stationed in an American bomber squadron off the coast of Italy, each flight mission introduces him to thousands of people determined to kill him.
