The major "Allies" grouping included the British Empire, France, Russia (until 1917), Italy (from 1915) and the United States (from 1917). Opposing the Allies, the major Central Powers included Germany, Austria-Hungary, and the Ottoman Empire (Turkey). Other countries and their colonies also became involved.
