Correct spelling: Charles Alan Fyffe
- An English historian; born at Blackheath, Dec. 3, 1845; died in London, Feb. 19, 1892. He graduated at Balliol College, Oxford, in 1868, and was called to the bar in 1876, but never actively practiced. As correspondent of the Daily News during the Franco-Prussian war he is said to have sent to that journal the first account of the battle of Sedan that appeared in print. On account of a false charge, he became depressed and committed suicide. His historical works are distinguished by accuracy and a pleasing, perspicuous style. They include: "History of Greece"( 1875); "History Primers"; and the well-known "History of Modern Europe"( 1880, 1886, 1890), covering the period from 1792 to 1878.
