The 1961 novel focuses on a World War II Air Force bombardier, John Yossarian, whose determined efforts to evade combat are thwarted by a bureaucratic rule, Catch-22, which became a lasting catchphrase for a no-win situation.

A 1970 film based on Catch-22 was directed by Mike Nichols and starred Alan Arkin as Yossarian and Martin Balsam as Cathcart.
