Major General Abraham Roberts


Roberts was appointed to command the newly installed Amir Shah Shujah's contingent in November 1839. Roberts was unhappy about the occupation of Afghanistan and voiced his concerns to his superiors. His suggestions went unheeded, especially by Macnaghten, and he resigned his appointment in 1840.
