An anti-war dark comedy, it is thematically connected in part to Heller’s famous novel catch-22.
What makes this book stand out?
Heller had a crystal ball when he wrote this. He wrote the dialogue for his military commanders that utterly fuses omnipotence and incompetence.
Read it for
It is emphatically Heller's singular style and bubbling over with satire and ripe with criticism of war and politics.
Don't read it for
It has none of the character development or believability.
