Joined the secret army raised against the occupying enemy and Vichy traitors (1942) Chief of the Thônes valley maquis (5-1943).He trained over 300 volunteers, turning them into real soldiers. Adored by his men, esteemed by his leaders, surrounded by the generous friendship of the local population, he organized the camp des Glières (1-1944) where, in the midst of the occupation, the French army resumed its life, its traditions, its weapons and its fight. In the unequal struggle against Germans and militiamen he heroically led his troop (5-1944), injured, prisoner of the gestapo. Despite the worst torture. He fiercely kept silent saving his comrades and friends, the Germans shot him cowardly here on 28-4-1944.
