It focuses on Capt. John Yossarian, a US Air Force bombardier who is furious because the bureaucratic rule known as Catch-22, which specifies that a concern for one's own safety in the face of dangers which are real and immediate is the process of a rational mind; a man is considered insane if he willingly continues to fly risky combat missions, but a request to be removed from duty is evidence of sanity and therefore makes him ineligible to be relieved from duty.
