This chapter explains that the British victory in the Seven Years' War was due to the kingdom's maritime strategic mobility. It argues that the naval power in the form of the Royal Navy was essential in maintaining maritime mobility, as it gave Britain the ability to eliminate the French navy while protecting the ships that transported the King's troops across the seas. It adds that besides naval power, Britain also relied on maritime commercial prosperity of the kingdom.
