Description:
List of successful U-boat commanders contains lists of the most successful German U-boat commanders in the two World Wars based on total tonnage.

World War I

This list contains the most successful German U-boats commanders during the First World War based on total tonnage. Only sunk commercial vessels are included, not military (warships) nor damaged ships.
