England, Russia and France formed the Triple Entente .
Germany, Austria-Hungary, Italy and Turkey as a supporting country formed the Triple Alliance .
This is what my History book says in the First World War chapter. But wait, is Allies and the Allied powers the same thing as the Triple Alliance or are they the same thing as Triple Entente?
I think that both are the same as Triple Alliance(They seem to be inflections of the word "Alliance"). I am asking this question because in the same chapter, my book uses the words Allies and Allied powers(to describe a group of countries). I tried searching the web but i am getting confused.
