In this paper we extend the methodology developed in Part I in order to accommodate the case of an axial time-varying torque (in addition to the two transverse timevarying torques) acting on a rotating rigid body. The analytic solutions thus derived describe the general attitude motion of a near-symmetric rigid body subject to timevarying torques about all three body-fixed axes.
