The following lists all the U-boats that disappeared during the Second World War for which there is no explanation available (the fate of all other U-boats is meticulously recorded). It is possible that new data may become available to account for these 'disappearances, and it certainly should not be assumed that these submarines all made their way to Antarctica. Where a possible explanation has been suggested, this is recorded.
