Je vous remercie de votre contribution à propos de Lucien Lippert.
Serait-il possible d'avoir accès à vos sources documentaires? J'aimerais plus d'information au sujet des membres de la 28ème division, le nombre d'adherents ainsi que les dates.
Bien à vous
-Sarah Lefébure, Belgique

Grosse erreur. Degrelle ne succéda jamais à Lippert. Jules Mathieu assura l'interim avant que la Légion ne soit reprise par le major Franz Hellebaut. Je renvoie à la biographie de Lippert que j'ai écrite et Mme Lefébure peut, si elle est toujours intéressée, me contacter via l'éditeur De Krijger

A Sarah Lefébure. Le meilleur livre sur le sujet a été récemment publié chez Heimdal (Tome I). Contactez l'auteur via la maison d'éditions.
