A group $G$ in which normality is transitive: if $N$ is a normal subgroup of $G$, and $H$ is a normal subgroup of $N$, then $H$ is a normal subgroup of $G$. Equivalently, every subnormal subgroup of $G$ is normal in $G$. Every completely reducible group is a T-group; the dihedral group of order 8 is the smallest finite group that is not a T-group. A group is a T-group if and only if it is equal to its own Wielandt subgroup.
