    go them around

    soldiers talking : "let's try to go them around from the rear"

    what does that mean?
    that the troop is going to attack the enemy from the rear of that they will surround them starting from the rear?
    right now, are thet in front of the enemy or already behind them?

    Do you mean go around them? Go them around is not possible as a phrase.

    Hi,Possopo

    I think that the meaning is :Let`s try to surround them [on all sides] and take them by surprise from the rear.

    Regards,

    Regards,
    Looking at your example again it really is very incomplete - and grammatically poor. A good sentence would be "Let's go around and attack them from the rear". This is almost Teia's meaning, but does not mean they are surrounded, just that you will attack them from the rear.
