    Hola,

    Estoy tratando de decir en inglés:
    "Muchos de los soldados previamente desmovilizados pasaron a engrosar las filas de este nuevo grupo armado"

    My guess:
    "Many of the previously demobilized soldiers went on to (inflate) the ranks of this new armed group"???

    La verdad no sé muy bien cómo traducir lo de "pasar a engrosar las filas".... ¿Alguna idea?

    Gracias.

    inflate is correct,or "fill"

    Tal vez "swell the ranks."
