Ze'ev Jabotinsky, an important early Zionist leader, joins with Joseph Trumpeldor to form a Jewish military force to fight in Palestine on the side of the British and against the Turks. Named the Zion Mule Corps, it consists of several hundred men from a community of Jews exiled from Palestine and living in Egypt.

Vladimir Yevgenyevich Zhabotinsky in Odessa, Russia, Jabotinsky has been fighting for Jewish rights since he was a teenager, literally and figuratively. When he was 23 he created the Jewish Self-Defense Organization, a militant group that used force to protect Jews during porgroms in Russia. This was when he changed his first name to Ze'ev, Hebrew for "wolf".
