The best description of the development of Windows NT, in my opinion,
is the book "Showstopper!: The Breakneck Race to Create Windows NT and
the Next Generation at Microsoft" by G. Pascal Zachary:
https://www.amazon.com/Showstopper-Breakneck-Windows-Generation-Microsoft/dp/1497638836/ref=tmm_pap_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=1517753530&sr=8-1

Although Amazon gives it a 2014 publication date it is much older.

Well worth reading.
