Zionist activist Vladimir “Ze’ev” Jabotinsky knows that the Jews will never have their state as long as the Ottomans rule Palestine.
When the Turks enter World War I on the side of the Central Powers, he sees his chance. He convinces England to establish a Jewish fighting force to serve with the British in Palestine.
Though the Jewish Legion fights with distinction, it will soon crash against the rocks of discrimination in the British military.
