However, unlike many, Wallace at least came partially to his senses; publicly apologized for his silliness, supported Eisenhower and then Nixon in 1960, and even wrote a book, Where I was Wrong. Unlike a great many who remained unrepentant to their graves (or in some cases to this day), he understood he had been duped about the nature of Stalin and his regime.
