Can't speak to "the best", but one I have is "The Greek War of Independence" by David Brewer 1-58567-172-x 2001.

another book, but does not extend to 1820s [covers up through 1816] is "Greeks in Russian Service in the Late 18th and Early 19th Century" by Nicholas Charles Pappas. Covers the Napoleonic period.

The volume from the Greek High Command that covers pre-Balkan War military events is a complete and concise account.

We used it as an important reference when we did our series of articles on the GWI back about 10 years ago in Time Portal Passages.

Actually a really nice one with lots of colour paintings is " The Greek War of Independence " by Peter Paroulakis.
Really nice inspirational illustrations…
