Operation Liège-Aachen was deemed a good exercise of the forward double envelopment and the possible payoff very large –the destruction of the enemy in the Aachen salient. In conversation with Jodl on 9 October, Hitler plumped for a two-pronged envelopment, setting in chain what would become a bitter controversy between his views and those of his major field commanders.
