The three things that work against you in cold weather is that the oil viscosity is higher which increases the power required to turn the engine over, the temperature of the compressed air in the cylinder is lower making ignition a little tougher and your battery output decreases with temperature.

Block heaters can help with the first issue and a little on the second, a Thermostart unit can help with the second, and a well charged battery and/or a battery heater can help with the third issue.
Personally our diesels have a block heater and Thermostart and I haven"t found a need for a battery heater - yet.
