I have seen that the verb retourner is used with "Y
Nous y retournons demain.
We go back there tomorrow
"Il n'a pas pu retourner de la guerre.
He couldn't return from the war.
Can I say
il n'en a pas pu retourner
He couldn't return from there
Does it work like that?
The adverbial pronouns y and en are not particular to the verb retourner.
Here are the Kwiziq lessons detailing how to use them -
Retourner à -- to go back to a place.Retourner de -- to come back from a place.
Depending what you want to say, you can replace "a place" with either y or en.
