I fished my copy out of the bookcase. It has good coverage of everything produced, even if just as prototypes, but very little, if anything, about projects. I would recommend getting Warbird Factory: North American Aviation in World War II by John M. Fredrickson as a companion volume; it covers NAA from its forerunners to the end of WW II and includes such bits as the only R2800-powered B-25 and the VB-25J especially fitted out for Gen. Eisenhower.

HTH,
Evan

The book I recommended is fascinating reading. I had not realized that a general strike at the NAA plant in Inglewood led to the US Army taking over the plant, temporarily, and settling matters.

I honestly do not know of any book covering just the Rockwell period which ended when Rockwell sold all of NAA off to Boeing. I think Bill Yenne's book will have to suffice there.
