I am sure this has been asked several times, I just have not located a previous answer yet. What is the best book available to research, date, identify parts and aquire in depth knowledge of the Lee Enfield from WWI - WWII/Korea?

Thank you for any insight that can be offered.

For history you will want this one: Skennerton's "The Lee Enfield"

Also look for a copy of Skennerton's Small Arms Identification Series book that covers the Mk III and Mk III* SMLE's. It's a thin book but has some really wonderful parts breakdowns.
