If the russian protofascists Black Centuries (Russian Patriotric Union) had taken power in 1905... would fascism have been triumphing ?

It is possible this Russia would not have gone to war with Austria, thus avoiding the war with Germany, etc. and as a result World War I does not occur quite the same way.

Hundreds of thousands are Germans are freed to defeat the French. Turkey may side with England as that nation wouldn't have to break away from England because of its treaty with Russia.

Thus the sides may have been:
England, France and Turkey against Germany, Austria and Italy.

In that case Germany and Austria triumph and yet another French government falls. Thus France joins the ranks of Spain as a fleeting world power whose time had long past. After two major defeats the French would have a hard time rising up again.

Interesting, but the victory of 1918 has not saved France from itself...
