Abstract: The Ten-year Rule was the overall national defense strategy formulated by the British government after World War I. It was made according to the strategic analysis of "no war within ten years"[1], and also a reflection of its declining economic power. This policy has led to a great armament reduction of the British government, especially the British navy. Britain rose from the sea, and its decline also began with the decline of its naval power.


Keywords: British Sea Power, National Defense Strategy, Ten-year Rule
