He is the subject of the book "Sketches From Life of Men I Have Known," written by Dean Acheson. Vandenberg was portrayed as a person who stands for the emergence of the United States into world power and leadership. His conversion from isolationism in the final days of the last war made him a large figure in the postwar world.
