Books with letter code "#T-" are magnificent extra large "coffee table size" volumes from Turner Publishing and are filled with painstakingly researched unit and battle histories, gripping first person accounts as told by the survivors themselves, maps and superior photographs.

"#BP-" coded books are high quality reprints of original WWII unit histories published by Battery Press. Other codes represent different publishers. Both "#T-" and "#BP-" coded books are limited production collectors editions with usually only 500 to 1,500 copies printed.

Many units have both "T" and "BP" versions of their history. "T" books rely heavily on first person accounts in addition to the recorded history whereas "BP" books are generally official history records as interpreted by the author. Also, many"T" books contain sensitive information which was not available when the original units histories were printed shortly after WWII. A reference library should contain both versions.

Most military historians agree that a true picture of past events can be seen only by studying both the general's view of the whole picture as well as the narrower but more defined view from the soldier on the front line or in the tank turret.
