Outstanding read! A secret Russian program to train their KGB agents to pass for Americans by setting up a camp to duplicate an American town filled with Vietnam War POWs.

Wow, twists and turns and spies!! The scary thing about this book is the fact that I believe (at least) that this could really happen or heck it could be happening already!!!

The world we live in!

I never knew up to the very end what the outcome would be!!

I know its an old book, but it is worth the read if you have never read this book. I had never read it and everyone sitting in the room when the book was brought up in discussion was practically appalled that I had never read this book!

An 80's Russian Spy novel. Well-written, easy to follow, great book if you have any interest in the Cold War espionage era. Lots of action, intrigue, and even a little romance.

A classic late Cold War thriller. A real page-turner, with a fine descriptive eye for detail in post-Stalin Soviet Union.

This was my first experience with DeMille when I was about 15. What an exceptional author! For the most part, every book has gotten better! Charm School is classic cold war! Love it!

Hands down, my favorite Demille novel, EVER. It is your classic mix of espionage and thriller. I am an twenty-something adn think it may not appeal to a lot of people my age, due to their lack of knowledge and understanding of the Cold War. I, however, get just as hung up it as I do the Vietnam war, so Demille's military books suit me just fine. I have read 10 of his novels and have yet to find one disappointing. Pick up this book, fall in love with Lisa, hope the best for her and Hollis, and always keep an eye out for Alevy; you'll read it again within the year. I promise (this comes from a guy who has never re-read a book in is life) that if you're into spy stories and/or the Cold War that this is THE book for you.
