More than 100 historical volumes and monographs of Army History Directorate (AHD) have been published up to now. These publications constitute the panorama of the modern Greek military history and cover — from the military point of view — almost all the historical events, which had a positive or negative effect on the modern history of Greece from 1897 up to now. More than 800,000 copies of the AHD volumes have been published and distributed so far.

It should be noted that the AHD volumes are published in compliance with Field Manuals No. 86–19 and No. 86–20. These significant publications are fully documented, based on original historical material (reports, proceedings, op­erational plans, orders of battle, war diaries, orders of the day, technical studies, financial details, etc). More than one person are the authors of these volumes, in collaboration with scientific committees.

The final draft of each volume is subject to a specific supervisory procedure, designated by the responsible AHD personnel, and a thorough examination held by an ad hoc committee (officers, historians, experts etc). Consequently, all the AHD volumes constitute real starting points for many researchers, specialized in military history, who may have access to the respective historical archives in order to complete and substantiate their researches.
