The Soviet Union's development of a completely new concept, that of the wing-in-ground-effect vehicle, was shrouded in secrecy due to its military potential. Here, for the first time in print, is the full story of the 'Caspian Sea Monster' along with other smaller craft and the huge derivatives which sadly remain mere flights of fancy thanks to the parlous state of the post-Soviet economy. 32 color and 165 b/w photos. Line drawings. 128 pages. Softback.
