One of the greatest novels of the 20th century, this hilarious satire on military madness is reissued with an introduction by Howard Jacobson. As relevant today as it ever was, it was ranked number 11 on the BBC's poll of the UK's best-loved books.
Presents the tale of the dangerously sane Captain Yossarian, who spends his time in Italy plotting to survive. This novel is a satirical indictment of military madness and stupidity, and the desire of the ordinary man to survive it.
