Every time I sneak up on something and press attack it just does a normal attack, it is starting to annoy the s outta me. --- PSN: Otsegus XBL : Spaulik87

you cant back stab everything but what ive noticed is in this game you amost have to circle a little past the point of being flush with their back THEN hit attack. each enemy is different but once you know the sweet spot it becomes second nature. i backstabbed constantly in sens fortress and other places --- PSN, Steam, Xbox Live: pharmy

I have also noticed that they can't have que'd another action against you yet. It's easy to backstab when they fully miss you, but when you block a hit you'll not have time to backstab.
Hmm guess practice makes perfect. I am at the undead Paris right now where the caster is + the 3 rapier skeletons. Back stab would be nice right about now haha. Thanks guys! --- PSN: Otsegus XBL : Spaulik87

Wait for them to attack, circle around and sodomize them. --- Beatings will continue until morale improves!

Forgetting to lower the shield is what got me most of the time. I'm pretty confident I'll get a backstab when I make sure to lower my shield. --- "My oh my, fools aplenty...that includes me, too." Legault, FE7

Just make sure that you're exactly behind the enemy and that you do NOT have your shield up. That's what I was doing wrong in the beginning, I kept my shield up but it doesn't work that way.
It's super easy when you get the hang of it, I'm doing nothing but backstabs right now.
