This study consolidates various, unclassified Soviet military and political writings on strategic deception into a theoretical model. The Soviet invasions of Czechoslovakia and Afghanistan are then compared and contrasted to the model. The study shows these two specific invasions to be textbook examples of Soviet strategic deceptions.
