Through flashbacks, this satirical anti-war book tells the story of a disoriented American soldier who believes himself to have experienced things like alien abduction and time travel before being taken prisoner by German soldiers. It has been consistently banned and challenged since its publication in 1969 for being “depraved,” “vulgar,” “anti-Christian” and “anti-American,” as well as containing explicit sexual content.
