The Big Three


Last updated 17 Jul 2018

The Big Three were the three main victorious countries after World War One. Sometimes they are referred to as the Allied Powers, sometimes the victors and sometimes the Big Three. They include Britain, France and the United States of America. Each of these countries had fought alongside each other during the First World War.

France had been badly damaged during the war, suffering devastation in the countryside and losing many thousands of soldiers during the conflict. Britain too had lost many soldiers throughout the war. This would have an impact on their approach to peace during the Paris Peace Conference. The United States joined the way in 1917, and lost relatively few soldiers when compared to Britain and France.
