World War I was not won by any single country.  The two sides in this war, the Central Powers and the Allied Powers, were each made up of multiple countries.  Therefore, we cannot identify one country as the winner of the war.

In World War I, the Allied Powers ended up as the winners.  The main countries that were part of the Allied Powers were the United Kingdom, France, and the United States.  Russia had been part of the Allied Powers at the start of the war but ended up surrendering after the Russian Revolution.  Italy was also a part of the Allied Powers, though it was not as important in the war.  There were also a number of other countries that were on the winning side. Among these were Japan, Serbia, and Belgium.  Again, these countries are not seen as major players in the war.

The best answer to this, then, is to say that the Allied Powers won the war.  If you need to identify specific countries, you could mention the UK, France, and the United States.  If you want to mention all of the countries on the winning side, follow this link for a list.

 The Allies for the majority of the war were without America's assistance. It wasn't until 1917 that the U.S. officially entered the war to help uphold democracy. America had stayed out before then partially due to the immigrant population asking for the country to stay neutral. The sinking of several U.S. ships and deaths of American citizens finally pushed the nation into joining the Allies.
