Incensed by George's secret marriage to the impoverished Amelia his father disinherits him, despite Dobbin's efforts to intervene, though he seems to be more concerned about the loss of money than affection for his wife. In Belgium Amelia is befriended by the down-to-earth wife of Major O'Dowd whilst Becky flirts with the top brass to further Rawdon's career. Since George is amongst those who are smitten by her she makes an enemy of her former friend. She also makes plans for her own future should Rawdon fail to survive the inevitable forthcoming battle - Waterloo.
