הגדודים העבריים
תרע"ז - תרע"ח
הגדודים העבריים היו הכוח הצבאי הסדיר היהודי הראשון בעת החדשה. הם הוקמו בידי טרומפלדור וז’בוטינסקי לאחר שז’בוטינסקי השיג מאת הבריטים אישור לגייס שלושה גדודי מתנדבים יהודים שישתתפו בכיבוש ארץ-ישראל מידי התורכים. הודות לכוח זה הכיר חבר הלאומים בזכותנו לריבונות על ארץ-ישראל.
כתב: הנכד, זאב ז’בוטינסקי

Jewish Battalions, 1917-1918
The Jewish Battalions were the first regular Jewish military formation of modern times. They were established by Trumpeldor and Jabotinsky after the latter obtained British agreement to recruit three battalions of Jewish volunteers to take part in the freeing of Eretz Israel from Turkish control. As a result of this formation, the League of Nations recognized our right to sovereignty over Eretz Israel.
