Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Lucien Rebatet (15 November 1903, Moras-en-Valloire, Dr me - 1972, Moras-en-Valloire) was a French author, journalist and intellectual, an exponent of fascism and virulent antisemite. As a young man, he was educated in Saint-Chamond, Loire. From 1923 to 1927 he studied at the Sorbonne after which he became an insurance agent. It is only in 1929 that he began his career as a writer, becoming a music and film critic (the latter under the pseudonym Fran ois Vinneuil) for the far right integralist Action Fran aise newspaper. In 1932 Rebatet became a contributor to the right-wing newspaper Je suis partout for which he wrote for until the Allied liberation in 1944. In 1938 Rebatet became head of information for Action Fran aise and worked closely with the movement's founder, Charles Maurras. Long before the outbreak of war between France and Nazi Germany, Rebatet expressed sympathy for National Socialism, notably in his articles for Je suis partout in which he accused Jews of wanting a war to topple Adolf Hitler's r gime. In 1940, Rebatet was drafted into the French Army and, although he served, he openly hoped for a "short and disastrous war for France."
