  4. French Defeat but Russian Victory in WW1.

    As we all know in WW1 Russia fell to revolution and soon signed a peace treaty with Germany while France endured to the end, but how plausible is, for a timeline I might write, a reversed scenario in which France surrenders at any point of the war, and possibly falls to some kind of socialist...

    WI: USA enters WW1 in 1914, Britain in 1917?
