After conveying that there were no fatalities or resistance, Mors shifted to discussing the exfiltration plan. Prior to X-Hour, Student and Mors had discussed three possible means of bringing Mussolini back to Pratica di Mare airfield. The most secure plan envisaged bringing Mussolini down by cable car to the lower station and then driving him to the airfield at L’Aquila in Mors’ vehicles. A flight of three He-111 bombers would then land at L’Aquila to pick up Mussolini and part of the rescue force.

Both men resolved to bring the issue up immediately with General Student. Back in Germany, Himmler used the raid to demonstrate the efficiency of his SS (and thereby further discredit Admiral Canaris and his Abwehr) and German propaganda minister Josef Goebbels saw Skorzeny’s exploit as a rare ray of sunshine in an otherwise gloomy season of German setbacks. Hitler willingly endorsed the aggrandizement of Skorzeny and allowed Goebbels to build him up into a Nazi super-hero. The role played by Goering’s Fallschirmjäger was conveniently downplayed.
