It has also been obtained by intimidating an enemy's naval force into inactivity, as occurred in the War of American Independence, when a British fleet was kept in home waters by the Government instead of being sent to prevent a French force from crossing the Atlantic; and also in one phase of the Russian war above alluded to, viz. the Black Sea campaign of 1854, in which, though they did not use it for the purpose, the Russians had a fleet quite equal to the task of obstructing the transport of the allied armies to the Crimea. It occurred again in the war between Japan and Russia when, with but little fighting, the latter's fleet was intimidated into permitting the passage of a great military expedition from the Japanese ports to the continent.
