I'm visiting a BoB veteran this evening.  I'll ask him if he has ever seen anything like the book you described.

I've polled all the WWII experts I currently know and struck out.  Your description has certainly intrigued me.  I'm going to keep asking as I meet more WWII historians.  Sorry that you haven't found it yet, but please post the title if you find it before I do.

It actually sounds a little like the Osprey books. You might find a Gaming store and check with them.
