...Triple Entente In 1907 , the Entente Cordiale between Britain and France was supplemented by a series of agreements between Britain and Russia, which itself was a military ally of France. The Triple Entente, though only an informal alliance, confirmed German paranoia about an ‘encirclement’ by these great powers, and thus helped to increase its tendency towards aggressive behaviour which ultimately led to World War I .

... Entente . A military alliance ( 1914–17 ) between Britain, France and Russia in the First World War. It was based on three earlier agreements: the Franco-Russian Alliance ( 1894 ), the Entente Cordiale between Britain and France ( 1904 ) and the Anglo-Russian Entente ( 1907 ). These agreements were drawn up in response to the Triple Alliance of Germany, Austria-Hungary and Italy formed in 1882 , and the effect was to divide Europe into two armed camps. Romania allied itself with the Triple Alliance in 1883 , and Italy withdrew in 1914 ( see Central...
