I seem to remember the comic being retitled Battle Action after the merger with Action. Can anyone confirm? Deadlock 11:49, 24 July 2007 (UTC)

It was called Battle Action Force from 1983 until 1988.Konczewski 17:10, 2 November 2007 (UTC)

Battle Picture Library[edit]

Is Battle Picture Library related to Battle (in any of its forms)? I presume it just a title IPC used for reprinting old war stories in a handy format? Does anybody know? Mrstonky (talk) 12:08, 6 July 2008 (UTC)


Battle Picture Library Is NOT Battle Picture Weekly[edit]

The word "battle" is short, to the point and people generally know what it means, making it a good choice for a title. :)
Battle Picture Library ran for 1706 editions, published between Jan 1961 and Dec 1984.

The article confused the two publications, by claiming the following:

   Collected editions

Some of the stories have been collected into trade paperbacks, published by Carlton Publishing Group imprint Prion and edited by Steve Holland

* Battle Picture Library: o Death or Glory (776 pages, September 2007, ISBN 1-85375-630-X) o Let 'em Have It (776 pages, October 2008, ISBN 1-85375-671-7) Charley's War has also been collected into their own volumes.


Death or Glory and Let 'em Have It are actually collections of reprinted editions of Battle Picture Library - NOT collected material from Battle Picture Weekly.

In my first solo mission for this unit - bravely enduring heavy fire and the threat of snipers - I removed this claim.
I am now reporting back to ask whether it would it be appropriate to create a new article for Battle Picture Library to clarify these are two different publications ?
And/Or mention the potential confusion in this article ?
A sister publication to Battle Picture Library that does have a Wikipedia article is War Picture Library.
That article at present also seems to make the mistake of implicitly assuming the two Battle publications to be a single one.

A late reply but yes, go for it, handy redlinks to other articles along these lines that need creating are at War Picture Library#See also. Although they both need expanding these might also prove useful [1], [2]. (Emperor (talk) 03:50, 29 July 2010 (UTC))

Battle Editorial Staff Errors[edit]

Much of the detail on the editorial staff at IPC and their respective roles on the various Battle Picture Weekly derivatives is incorrect. Steve MacManus was the sub/deputy/assistant editor for much of the early run. Doug Church was art editor, but left the title in 1976 to work on Action and later, 2000AD.

The unfinished list of writers and artists is also riddled with errors. Admittedly, in the early days of the title, writers and artists were not credited, but in later issues they were, yet still, in cases where both writer and artist were credited in the published comic, the information provided here is wrong. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Mooseharris (talkcontribs) 21:53, 11 November 2013 (UTC)
