Perceiving the attraction between Henry and Catherine, he does reconnaissance, learning of her connection to the Allens; he gathers intelligence interrogating John Thorpe (the singularly UNintelligent); and finishes his recon by inviting Catherine for dinner for observation.
He then turns to the execution of his mission in three phases:
Graham ends this by stating: The campaign results in victory! Catherine is won! LOL!
Of course, she was won long before he began his campaign, all of this was unnecessary. But I found the idea that the General would go about procuring an heiress for his son as a military action very amusing - he just can't separate his military life from his home life.
Can you think of any other actions of the General's which could be cast in this light?
