  Note  
 
Lettens Jan05/04/2012Kapitänleutnant Lothar von Arnauld de la Perière was to become the most successful U-boat skipper of all time, a record which still stands.During his wartime career, he sank 194 ships totalling 454,000 tons, always strictly according to prize rules often with his boat's 88 mm deck gun.

His patrol performance was outstanding: in April/May 1916 he sank 23 ships, totaling 68,000 tons on a five week patrol and in July/August 1916 in four weeks he sank 54 ships, totaling 91,150 tons using only 4 torpedoes (one miss). He died in an aircraft accident at Le Bourget airport near Paris, France in 1941.
