Luxury Fleet? The Sea Power of (Soviet) Russia

  • Geoffrey Till

Abstract

In the view of Admiral S. Gorshkov, lately Commander-in-Chief of the Soviet Navy, ‘The fleet wrote into the history of our homeland many remarkable heroic pages and played an important role in the history of the development of Russia’,2 hostile propaganda and endless difficulties notwithstanding. But to what extent can twentieth-century Russia in fact be counted as a maritime power? What form has Russian sea power taken and what influence did it have on Russian history? Was the Soviet Navy simply the latest iteration of a doomed and impossible dream for the land-bound Russians?
