does the sentence "his vehemence was extreme" mean that "he was very excited"? ‘It’s certainly a very noisy place,’ said Gerald, still in an undertone. ‘Why did you have to come tonight of all nights?’ The Commandant spoke in the same undertone, but his vehemence was extreme. ‘This doesn’t happen often?’ ‘Once every year.’ ‘They should have told us.’ ‘They don’t usually accept bookings. They’ve no right to accept them. When Pascoe was in charge they never did.’ ‘I expect that Mrs Pascoe felt they were in no position to turn away business.’ ‘It’s not a matter that should be left to a woman.’ Q:does the sentence "his vehemence was extreme" mean that "he was very excited"?

The Commnadant was extremely annoyed. "Vehemence" means "intensity". You have to gauge from the context what his mood was. My judgment is that he was very annoyed.
