By José Luís Jerez Riesco Crash landing in San Sebastián, Spain, in 1945, Waffen SS officer Léon Degrelle narrowly escaped death from his native Belgium and the Allied forces. Stripped of his Belgian citizenship and sentenced to death in absentia for fighting on the German side against Bolshevism on the Eastern Front during WWII, Degrelle lived the rest of his life in exile in Spain, harbored unofficially by Francisco Franco’s government. During these 49 years in exile, Degrelle never expressed any regret for his place in the war, nor did he remain silent as fantastical narratives were woven about the events of the war and the supposed atrocities of the Germans and their allies in the decades following. Despite attacks on his family, vilification by the whole world and many conflicts with the Church, he never wavered in either his Catholic faith or his conviction in National Socialism. Léon Degrelle in Exile: 1945–1994 presents the story of these 49 years, complete with extensive letters between Degrelle and his friends and family, interviews, speeches and anecdotes from those who knew and loved him. Degrelle was one of the few remaining from the Axis side to share his account of the war and his commentary on the world as it changed drastically after the Axis defeat in 1945.
