Other men also seek the haven of Catch-22 book hospital by feigning illness, but after the mysterious death of the soldier in white, the Texan forces them to return to the front. He chooses another way out, deciding Catch-22 book desert the army and flee to neutral Sweden. Yossarian is promoted to captain after a mission in FerraraItalyin which, after missing a bridge, he flies back a second time and successfully destroys it, though a squadron member is killed. He therefore spends much of the book concocting ever more inventive ways of escaping his missions. When able, hospitalized officers censor enlisted men's letters home; an early indication of Yossarian's character is the creative way he approaches this task, even altering one letter to resemble a love note and signing Chaplain Tappman's name. Anyone who wants to get out of combat duty isn't really crazy.

Catch-22 book McWatt playfully buzzes the beach in his plane and accidentally slices Kid Sampson in half; he then deliberately crashes his plane into a mountain. We meet several key characters in the opening chapters. Then, an otherwise unknown man, Muddis killed just two hours after his arrival and is dumped in his tent. His assistant, the atheistic Corporal Whitcomb, constantly abuses the chaplain and collaborates with Colonel Cathcart to have the chaplain court-martialed.

It's probably been a while since you read this classic satire, so before tuning into the first episode of the new series, which premieres May 17, you might want to refresh on the Catch book ending.
