A pioneer and renowned soldier, Trumpeldor is one of the early thinkers to advocate for the establishment of Eretz Yisrael based on communalism and labor. A founder of He’chalutz and the first Jewish Legion in WWI, he loses his arm in the Japan-Russia war, later coming to Eretz Yisrael in 1912. Working as an agricultural laborer, he becomes a celebrated defender of the Upper Galilee, where he ultimately loses his life.
