We can develop a theory of predictable wartime Soviet naval strategy by examining the lessons learned from Germany's experiences in World Wars I and II. The geostrategic similarities between Russia today and Germany in 1914 and 1939, combined with the strong Soviet interest in using military history to support current planning, justify a review of the Maritime Strategy from the perspective of its ability to halt a concerted Soviet submarine assault on wartime shipping in the Atlantic.
