Pforzheimer sees this "one of the best available books on Communist peacetime deception operations." Constantinides believes the work "could have been even more thorough had the author written less on the events of 1968 ... and more on such matters as agent of influence operations."

Unsinger, IJI&C 1.2, identifies Bittman as a member of Czech intelligence from 1954 to 1968. "At times his examination is superficial, and for depth into some specific events, the reader will have to look at Bittman's earlier work." Phillips, IJI&C 1.3, notes that "Chez Espionage regulars consider" this "an excellent study," and they consider Bittman "the top authority on disinformation in the U.S."
