Heller was born on May 1, 1923 in Coney Island, Brooklyn, New York to poor Jewish parents, Lena and Isaac Donald Heller , of Russia. When he was young, he liked to write. As a teenager, he wrote a story about the Russian invasion of Finland and submitted it to the New York Daily News, but it was rejected. After graduating from Abraham Lincoln High School in 1941, Shearer became an apprentice blacksmith in the second year, a messenger and clerk. In 1942, when he was only 19 years old, he joined the US Army Aviation Corps.Two years later, he was sent to the Italian front, where he performed 60 combat missions as a B-25 bomber. Its force was the 488th Bombardment Squadron of the 12th Air Force. Heller later described the war as "At first it was fun ... you felt like it had a glorious feeling."When he got home, "he felt like a hero ... on a plane at the time," I did 60 missions, even though I told them the mission was primarily milking. After the war, Heller studied English at the University of Southern California and later at G.I. New York. Bill graduated from the latter institution in 1948. In 1949, he received a master's degree in English from Columbia University.

The duality of war. War is the most destructive and tragic thing in human activity. And yet the experience of war has a profound and strangely impressive effect on those who fight. War kills, injures, and intimidates people, but it can also reveal a sense of fraternal power and selfless purpose. This experience changes soldiers, and that change lasts a lifetime.
Most of those who join the military and go to war are young people - 18, 19 years old and many have never been away from home. They have little experience of the world, let alone war, death, and murder. For them, and for all soldiers, battle is a complex mix of emotions that defines the experience of war and shapes the experience of returning home.
Fear and joy. It is unrealistic to show that war is not one of many and exciting things. War offers soldiers raw life: a lively, terrifying, and full-blown explosion. According to Sebastian Junger, “It’s crazy. It’s the worst thing in the world that can lead to physical and mental injuries, but people who experience it will miss it so much. "This excitement is related to the physiological response to trauma and stress in the amygdala center of the brain - struggle, flight or part of the brain - adrenaline flow, increased heart rate and blood pressure, heart, brain and major muscle groups." There is no such thing. " said one of the Afghan veterans to Junger. adrenaline.
He then worked briefly at Time Inc. before working as an ad writer for a small advertising company There, he worked with future novelist Mary Higgins Clark (Mary Higgins Clark). Heller wrote at home. It was first published in 1948, when "The Atlantic" published one of his short stories. This story almost won the title of "Atlantic No. 1". He married Shirley Held from 1945 to 1981 and had two children, Erica (born in 1952) and Theodore (born in 1956).
One morning in 1953, Heller was sitting at home, thinking: "It was love at first sight. When she first met the pastor, (Joseria) fell in love with him." Today, he began to imagine the possible story of this story, and invented the characters, plot and tone of the story. Within a week, he completed the first chapter and sent it to his agent. He didn't write anything the following year because he planned the rest of the story. The opening chapter was published as "Catch-18" in 1955, ranking 7th in New World Writing. Although he originally hoped that the story was nothing more than a novel, Heller was able to add enough content to the plot that he thought it might become his first novel. When he completed a third of the work, his agent, Candida Donadio, sent it to the editor. Heller had no particular attachment to the work, and decided that if the editors were not interested, he would not finish it. The work was quickly bought by Simon.
