Because Germany's continental neighbors were its most important trading partners and its colonies were inconsequential to German economic security, Caprivi believed that Germany should concentrate its defense resources on its ground forces to enable it to dominate the continent, and that it should develop only a limited counterblockade capability to ensure continued access to overseas trade.
In the maritime theater, Wilhelm's preoccupation with battleships led him to neglect German development of a cost-effective counterblockade submarine fleet that could have posed a more secure and effective threat against the British fleet.
In contrast, Adolf Hitler later would understand the value of a less expensive submarine capability to a continental power's blockade and counterblockade capabilities.
While the Berlin wall had been a symbol for mutual acceptance of a divided Europe, it was the absence of a Soviet counterblockade
of West Berlin during the missile crisis that sealed superpower acceptance of the territorial status quo in Europe.(38) After the successful demonstration of U.S.
Corridors were 20-mile wide air Lanes protected by written agreement; the allies also responded with a counterblockade
of the eastern zone.
(9) In the near term, therefore, any PLAN counterblockade task force would be operating at or beyond the limits of its professional ability and combat range.
PLAN submarines, consequently, are not a counterblockade panacea, though the threat they represent cannot be completely dismissed.
The new manual envisaged a dozen types of naval operations, aimed at destroying the enemy forces at sea, against coastal "objects" (installations), on sea communications and blockade, in support of own sea communications and counterblockade
, landing operations, antilanding operations, and operations in support of the army flank.
