A small 1968 book by David Douglas Duncan, called I Protest!, was a condemnation of U.S. military policy in Vietnam from a photographer (and former Marine) known for his glorifying imagery of soldiers’ valor in World War II and the Korean War, as well as in Vietnam. (Philip Caputo’s 1983 novel DelCorso’s Gallery, pits a Duncan-like character named P. X. Dunlop, seeking heroes, against a McCullin-like character named Nicholas DelCorso, haunted by the horrors of war, each despising the other’s approach.)
