The exclusive economic zone (EEZ) was created from the near-shore or littoral waters, so assessing the effect of the EEZ on contemporary expeditionary operations begins with a historical understanding of the importance of military operations in the coastal zone. This chapter discusses sea power in the ancient world; the development of naval powers in Portugal, Spain and the Dutch Republic; and Anglo-American expeditionary naval power.

Keywords: exclusive economic zone; sea power; naval forces; coastal zone; naval history; military operations
