Equally important was the novel also published in 1922, by the expatriate Irishman James . Although his books were controversial because of their freedom of language and content, Joyce's revolutions in narrative form, the treatment of time, and nearly all other techniques of the novel made him a master to be studied, but only intermittently copied. Though more conventional in form, the novels of D. H. Lawrence were equally challenging to convention; he was the first to champion both the primitive and the supercivilized urges of men and women.

World War I shook England to the core. As social mores were shaken, so too were artistic conventions. The work of war poets like Siegfried and Wilfred , the latter killed in the war (as were Rupert and Isaac ), was particularly influential. Ford Madox 's landmark tetralogy, is perhaps the finest depiction of the war and its effects. The new era called for new forms, typified by the work of Gerard Manley Hopkins, first published in 1918, and of T. S. , whose long poem (1922) was a watershed in both American and English literary history. Its difficulty, formal invention, and bleak antiromanticism were to influence poets for decades.

Another NLF leaflet claimed that the war in Vietnam was for profit. There was a myth during the war that Vietnam was floating on a sea of oil and that was why the United States had chose to take part. Other rumors claimed that LBJ and his wife were getting rich from government contracts. A third rumor was that the was stripping of zinc. These rumors were all nonsense, but at the time many people were willing to believe them. The leaflet depicts an American patrol in the bush at the left and the text "You go in," while at the right coffins are depicted draped with the American flag and the text "You come out." The back of the leaflet explains what the war is all about:

Regional Force Units - Usually recruited from their local province into 500-man battalions. They were less well trained and armed and might be called a militia of the Viet Cong.

Local Force Units - Recruited from the same village into small 10 or 12-man units. They were part-time soldiers who might farm or work at a regular job by day. They were often used as guides when the larger units moved into their areas for an attack.

They were the military branch of the National Liberation Front (NLF), controlled by the Central Office for South Vietnam (COSVN), which was located near the Cambodian border. For arms, ammunition and special equipment, the Vietcong depended on war materials brought down the Ho Chi Minh trail by trucks, porters and even bicycles. They met their other needs within South Vietnam by confiscation of rice, forced sale of bonds to farmers, etc. The main force Vietcong units were uniformed, full-time soldiers. They had the ability to launch large-scale offensives over a wide area. Regional forces were also full-time, but operated only within their own districts. When necessary, the small regional units could combine to make up battalions and regiments. If the enemy pressure became too great, they simply separated into their individual units and cells and returned to their jungle hideaways and caves. They went south to their old childhood areas and began a campaign of assassination, sabotage, and propaganda.
