Many interviews were done in Epirus and Crete, while secondary sources and illustrative material are mostly, but not exclusively from the Historical Archives of the War Museum in Athens, and from the Archives of the Greek Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The description of the battles are based on the respective publications of the Greek Ministry of National Defense and corroborated by foreign sources. The Introduction of the book covers the period from 1909 to 1940 both in the world and in Greece, including the Asia Minor catastrophe.
