I got this by playing a sandbox game.

Play a Sandbox game by going to New Game --> Sandbox
Select your Dynasty, although it doesn't matter for this.

Use the following settings (the rest of the options do not matter)
Starting Era: Modern Times
Starting Money: Unlimited
Political Difficulty: Very High
Economical Difficulty: Very High

The goal here is to keep USA relations as low as possible and eventually they will invade you and you want to have a strong army when they do invade.

I just built 10 army bases as they provide tanks and they are far better than infantries. I made sure to upgrade it aswell which gives you stronger tanks. You will get this achievement also for building 5 army bases.

When the game starts, build an Embassy immediately and invite Russia into your Embassy. This action will be a negative impact on USA relations.
Praise Russia and this will also have a negative impact on USA relations.
You can do this every 12 months and the USA relations will go down by 10-15 points each time. It does increase slowly over time though if you're not doing anything negative.
Make sure you praise Russia every 12 months and be very careful not to Expel Russia as this will be positive towards USA relations.
Don't bother inviting the USA to your Embassies because inviting them in is a positive for relations also and you cannot do negative things directly to them in there anyway. Praising Russia will be negative towards USA anyway.

Other things you can do is check the Almanac cn_LT+cn_X and press cn_RB until you get to the tab for foreign relations, this is where you can check how much the USA dislike you and how likely an invasion threat is. If you highlight USA, there will be green and red bullet points. You want to address the green points and try and turn them red or make them disappear altogether, you want all the bullet points to be red as this will further help your cause.
Usually it would involve you changing the Constitution cn_RT +cn_X, make a note of the points which are causing green bullet points to appear and make sure you change them to something else.
When you have amended the constitution, you have to press cn_X to submit it. Once you do this, you cannot change the constitution until 18 months have passed so be careful that you don't press it by accident.

There will be a lot of waiting around involved in this, if you keep the USA relations between 0-20 then the invasion threat will slowly get bigger. When it says Very High invasion threat, that means you're about to be invaded. Just make sure you're ready for them by then.
An invasion is similar to a rebel attack (which you should know the drill for) except it is worse because there will be enemy tanks. You simply have to beat all the red targets and you will get the achievement.
I advise saving before you're about to get invaded in case things go wrong.

Once you beat all of the USA invaders, the achievement will pop.
