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

Grosse erreur. Degrelle ne succ├ęda jamais ├á Lippert. Jules Mathieu assura l'interim avant que la L├ęgion ne soit reprise par le major Franz Hellebaut. Je renvoie ├á la biographie de Lippert que j'ai ├ęcrite et Mme Lef├ębure peut, si elle est toujours int├ęress├ęe, me contacter via l'├ęditeur De Krijger
