Allied Powers

 

(also Allies; Russian, chetvernoe soglasie), in World War I, a coalition that, together with other states, opposed the Central Powers. In Russian usage the term is some-what more restricted than in the West and refers to Great Britain, France, Russia, and Italy. The coalition was formed when Italy, which had been part of the Triple Alliance of 1882, joined the Triple Entente.
