The biggest loser in the war was Britain, who lost her empire, foreign assets and was still paying for the cost of the war (mostly to the USA) decades later.

 Poland, The Allies, And World War II

 Propaganda Postcards of the Great War, Allied Powers
By the end of World War One in November 1918, some 26 countries had joined the Allied Powers and declared war upon the Central Powers.
The German propagandists were the first to use the term "Weltkrieg" (world war), and it was soon picked up by both sides.
While fifteen more nations joined the Allied cause during the course of the war, the only two additions that had substantive military impact on the ultimate Allied victory were the entry of the Kingdom of Italy in May 1915 and the United States in April 1917.

They were the only people of the allies who, when the reconciliation between the Sicilians took place, had not made peace with her; nor indeed would they have done so now, if they had not been pressed by a war with the Hipponians and Medmaeans who lived on their border, and were colonists of theirs.
And it shall not be lawful for the Athenians or their allies to carry on war against them after the treaty has been concluded, so long as the tribute is paid.
It shall not be lawful to carry on war, either for the Argives, Eleans, Mantineans, and their allies, against the Athenians, or the allies in the Athenian empire: or for the Athenians and their allies against the Argives, Eleans, Mantineans, or their allies, in any way or means whatsoever.

 Charles Lindbergh's Noninterventionist Efforts & America First Committee
America First Committee, founded in September 1940, was the most powerful isolationist group in America before the United States entered World War II.
America First disagreed with another powerful group, the Committee to Defend America by Aiding the Allies.
His approach was, in effect, more understanding of the Germans (without approving of what they did) and more skeptical of the Allies than the conventional view in the United States.

 Poland's betrayal by the Western Allies - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
This agreement stated that in the event of war the other allies were to fully mobilize and carry out a "ground intervention within two weeks" in support of the ally being attacked.
The resulting loss of the "eastern territories," approximately 48% of Poland's pre-war territory, to the Soviet Union is seen as another "betrayal" by the Western Allies.
As for Allied compromises following the war, Soviet actions made it clear that nothing short of another war would force them out of Poland.
