his fingers held the book she had sent to him before he went off to the war. I want to know the difference between "go off to "and "go off"

"Go off" has several meanings as a phrasal verb, but in this context it means "to leave". Adding "to" tells the reader where he goes.

Going off implies that he is going away somewhere far.
