He views the war as a destructive tool both to institutions and their supporters. While his arguments about self-survival seem unusual and even paranoid, they sometimes possess an amazing amount of common sense and lucidity. He futilely protests when Colonel Cathcart continuously increases of the number of missions that Yossarian must complete. At the end of the book, Yossarian decides to flee rather than face an unjust court-martial hearing. I suppose if he really believed in his cause, he simply is doing what he believes in. I'm not sure hero or coward work. Some call it more heroic to dessert because he could he would also be deserting everything close to him. This really depends on your viewpoint of war in general.
