Chapter Summary

This chapter analyses the result of Swedish naval administration in terms of sea control achieved by operations with the fleet. It may also fill a need for a modern survey of the more important naval operations in the Baltic. The central theme of this chapter is to find to which extent in terms of time and geography the participating navies were able to control the sea during major wars and how that influenced the wars. The chapter gives brief information about the forces that were at sea, simply in order to show the magnitude of the administrative tasks and how it changed during two centuries. Denmark and Lübeck desired first of all to keep control of the southern Baltic Sea, their own home water. It discusses the extent to which naval operations in the Baltic were decided by administration, geo-strategic preconditions, or strategic and tactical achievements at sea.

Keywords: Baltic Sea; Denmark; naval operations; Swedish naval administration
