Operation Clipper was an Allied offensive to reduce the size of the Geilenkirchen Pocket near Aachen. It resulted in an eventual Allied victory. However, the Allies suffered heavy losses.

PreludeEdit

The first Allied troops to reach Aachen were units of the US First Army, who arrived in the area on September 16th, 1944,[1] but a planned October 1st attack against the Siegfried Line was frustrated by bad weather.[2]
