French writer. After a visit to Germany in 1935 he became an enthusiastic advocate for Nazism.
He supported fascist and antisemitic ideas in opposition to the French state. In 1940 he founded the pro-Nazi weekly newspaper La Gerbe. During World War II, he was a member of an organization founded in 1941 by Fernand de Brinon and Jacques Doriot to recruit volunteers to fight alongside the Germans in Russia.
