Published in 1961, this book presents a satirical indictment of military madness and stupidity, and the desire of the ordinary man to survive it. It is the tale of the dangerously sane Captain Yossarian, who spends his time in Italy plotting to survive.
"Wildly original, brutally gruesome, a dazzling performance that will outrage as many readers as it delights. Vulgarly, bitterly, savagely funny, it will not be forgotten by those who can take it" New York Times "Blessedly, monstrously, bloatedly, cynically funny, and fantastically unique. No one has ever written a book like this" Financial Times "Not only the best novel to come out of the war but the best novel to come out of anywhere in years" The Nation "The greatest satirical work in the English language since EREHWON" -- Philip Tonybee Observer "An apocalyptic masterpiece" Chicago Times
