I am looking for extensive historical accounts of turbulence that ideally is strong in math and physics (at least giving references).

Any suggestions?

The only book I found is "A Voyage Through Turbulence "

I like the Darigol book that you mention. There is also Uriel Frisch, on Turbulence: The Legacy of Kolomogorov.
