Ibn Mawdud:

Lying is something to be assiduously avoided except:

In war for the purpose of deceiving the enemy, in bringing about reconciliation between two parties, to maintain harmony in the household and to prevent an oppressor from committing oppression.

And they agreed about the legitimacy of deluding the non-believers during the war and any ways it could be possible (and delusion here means to make schemes and battle).

Source: Saheeh Muslim Sharh Al-Nawawi. Vol. 12, Pg. # 45.

Ibn Hajar Al-Asqalani: 

And the essence of delusion is to reveal something while hiding a different thing .
