Note that for this achievement to unlock your defending country must have one army and the attacking country must have at least SIX (because one army stays behind). You could wait for this to unlock randomly, but if you want to force it, there are several powerful ways to improve your odds:
- Get a bonus defense die from a victory condition. (Note that the rewards for victory conditions are assigned randomly at the start of each game, so restart until you see this one.)
- Get a bonus defense die from controlling three Barracks and being in a country next to the Missile. (Does NOT stack with the above defense die.)
- Put an airport in or beside your defending country. (This is another victory condition reward.)
- Use a second controller so your attacker is human, and have him explicitly attack with 1 die at a time instead of 3.

To help with planning, these are the odds of defending 1 army vs. 6 under various conditions.
Normal: 0.97%
With bonus die: 6.71%
With airport: 5.46%
With attacker rolling 1 die at a time: 6.75%
With bonus die + airport: 25.02%
With bonus die + attacker rolling 1 die at a time: 23%
With airport + attacker rolling 1 die at a time: 19.65%
With all three: 47.35%

So it'll come pretty quickly if you have any two of the above conditions.
