A sudden and violent collapse:not the defeat.

A sound defeat. Defeat can also be the answer but when compared, collapse is somewhat stronger in meaning. So go with it.

No, I feel defeat is the most appropriate since collapse refers to a wide range of meanings.

Defeat is right. I think.

Collapse is the correct choice as Debacle means a violent failure.

Defeat does sound like a failure, but collapse is a stronger word here.
