In Ammianus Marcellinus: An Annotated Bibliography, 1474 to the Present, Fred W. Jenkins surveys scholarship on Ammianus from the editio princeps to the present.

The Philological and Historical Commentary to Ammianus Marcellinus' Res Gestae is the standard and the only complete commentary on Res Gestae. It is of great importance to scholars in Roman history, Latin philology, military history and historiography in general.
After the diligent work of P. de Jonge, who wrote commentaries on books 14-18 from the 1930s till the 1980s, J. den Boeft, D. den Hengst, H.C. Teitler and, starting 1991, J.W. Drijvers have steadily worked on the commentaries to the remaining books 19-31 of Res Gestae. Their collaborative work has received much praise in the international scholarly world, and has been completed in 2018.

Originally published by Wolters-Noordhoff, Groningen, in 1935 and 1939, and reprinted (unrevised) by Bouma’s Boekhuis n.v. publishers, Groningen, in 1972.
Book 25 of Ammianus Marcellinus' Res Gestae is the final part of the trilogy (books 23-25) on the emperor Julian's Persian expedition. Covering a period of eight months, from June 17, 363 to February 17, 364, it contains a series of momentous events: the death of Julian on June 26, the surprising appointment of the unexperienced Jovian as his successor, the dramatic and difficult return of the Roman army, the painful surrender of Roman territory around the upper course of the Tigris to the Persian king Sapor, and finally Jovian's sudden death. The contrast between Julian, who for all his shortcomings was a true leader of men, and Jovian, who lacked this stature and who failed to defend the integrity of the Roman Empire, gives the book the character of a diptych.
