Joseph Heller - Catch-22 PDF Download eBookCatch-22 is a classic, brilliant satirical novel written by Joseph Heller. The book has now considered one of the most important twentieth century literary works and gained cult followers. Heller's fellow WWII veteran referred to the novel as the most accurate book about military. It also covers several themes and motives, like heroism, bureaucracy, religious faith, sanity, greed, and amorality of capitalism.
At the heart of Catch-22 resides the incomparable, malingering bombardier, Yossarian, a hero endlessly inventive in his schemes to save his skin from the horrible chances of war.
His problem is Colonel Cathcart, who keeps raising the number of missions the men must fly to complete their service. Yet if Yossarian makes any attempts to excuse himself from the perilous missions that he's committed to flying, he's trapped by the Great Loyalty Oath Crusade, the bureaucratic rule from which the book takes its title: a man is considered insane if he willingly continues to fly dangerous combat missions, but if he makes the necessary formal request to be relieved of such missions, the very act of making the request proves that he's sane and therefore, ineligible to be relieved.
