Sergey Georgiyevich Gorshkov (Серге́й Георгиевич Горшков, 26 February 1910 - 13 May 1988) was a Soviet naval officer during the Cold War who oversaw the expansion of the Soviet Navy into a global force. After a distinguished career during World War II, he was appointed Commander-in-Chief of the Soviet Navy in 1956, a position he held until 1985. He became the Admiral of the Fleet of the Soviet Union in 1967, the highest naval rank of the Soviet Unions, and one of only three men to achieve that rank. Under Leonid Brezhnev, Gorshkov oversaw a massive naval build-up throughout the 1970s.
Gorshkov is often associated with the phrase "'Better' is the enemy of 'Good Enough'" ("Лучшее - враг хорошего") which is reputed to have hung on the wall of his office as a motto.
