133 pages; 6 chapters
The Soviet Army from 1924 through 1995 was expert at the art of deception,
maskirovka. How to Deceive the Enemy offers the reader an interesting
introduction to the
art of military deception as explained by two expert Red Army
'How to Deceive the Enemy' is what they called their classes in
deception, and now it is available for you. How to Deceive the Enemy is still
important today because some of the major
Soviet strategic deceptions instituted
in 1970-92, are still grinding away controlling the European Union, Britain and the
newly socialist/communist USA. The truth is, the communists won the Cold War; and
all you were told by their tools, especially the CIA, State Department, the US media
and 99% of American writers, was a pack of lies, or
maskirovka. There is strong
evidence, for example, that the
Soviet deception method, Reflexive Control, is
now powerfully controlling the US government. This e-book is not for the millions of
sheep who voted for America’s second commie president and first foreigner
president, B. Hussein Obama.
How to Deceive the Enemy is for those people who
are smart enough to know the
power of Soviet military deception 'Glavnoe
Upravlenie Strategicheska Maskirovka'
, and want to understand how it is
controlling their lives.
Review Table of Contents
"The Russian term maskirovka refers to a wide variety of deceptive practices including secrecy, and camouflage. The five
categories of
maskirovka: camouflage, decoying, feints and demonstrations, and disinformation, are, in effect, types of
Soviet doctrine has incorporated deception into its combat support doctrine as protection and
maskirovka. "...The aims
of protection are to prevent enemy surprise attacks, to prevent enemy reconnaissance from penetrating into the main
forces, and to create favorable conditions for an organized engagement in battle...
maskirovka... embraces camouflage,
concealment and deception... (and)... attaches great importance to the use of smoke-generating equipment..."
The Soviet practice of perceptions management refers to a complex of pervasive activities directed mainly towards
media/policy makers via influence channels.  Influence channels include self-serving or deceptive statements by Soviet
leaders or arms control negotiators, covert placement of media articles, forgeries and maintenance of media agents of
influence. Intelligence deception is directed specifically at intelligence services through controlled human or technical
collection channels.  Those channels serve as pathways for the transmission of an often-bewildering blizzard of diverse
message components. The observer who seeks understanding the thought patterns, which regulate the dynamics of
deceptive communications, must first train himself to identify the various elements that constitute the available deception
The aim of
maskirovka is to help in the achievement of. As Red Army Field Regulations (1944) informed the reader,
“surprise dumbfounds the enemy, paralyses his will and deprives him of the ability to offer organized resistance”. Misled
as to force ratios and expecting an attack (or defence/counter blow) at a different time and/or place and on a different
axis, the enemy will be maldeployed and working to a decision which does not accord with objective circumstances. His
subsequent decision-making will be complicated and probably delayed and he may be persuaded to deploy his reserves
belatedly and /or on the wrong axis. He will thus be forced to engage in combat in unfavourable circumstances, possibly
with troops demoralized as a result of being surprised."
