DescriptionAn 1947 anti-communist conspiracy aimed at seizing power in France

The Plan Blue (French:Plan Bleu) was an anti-communist conspiracy aimed at seizing power in France, prepared in 1946-1947. The judgment in the Blue Plan case was delivered on Thursday February 3 , 1949.

Goals of conspirators and members of the network

The plot brought together former Vichyists, former anti-Communist resistance fighters and the military, who obtain financing from industrialists, for fear of the Communists, who were then a strong force in France.

Its main leaders are Roger-Luc Aurouet and Count Edme de Vulpian, lord of Lamballe.

Georges Loustaunau-Lacau and the general of the gendarmerie Maurice Guillaudot were arrested, but were exonerated and released without any follow-up after six months in prison.


The plot was discovered on June 24 1947 by the intelligence service DCRG, in the chimney of the castle of Lamballe, and revealed by the Minister of the Interior, Édouard Depreux, on June 30, 1947.
