"The greatest satirical work in the English language" Observer "Blessedly, monstrously, bloatedly, cynically funny and fantastically unique. No one has ever written a book like this" Financial Times "My all-time favourite war-novel" -- Andy McNab Spectator "Catch-22 gave us a right to laugh at the macabre. Laughter is a soldier's response to a lot of absurdity and the terror of it all. The military machine does the strangest things that make no sense to the rest of us." Tim O'Brien "Catch-22 is the only war novel I've ever read that makes any sense" -- Harper Lee, 1961
