The remarkable tale of Marina Yurlova, who signed up as a fighting Cossack in 1914, at the age of 14. Through the war and revolution, Yurlova encountered Turks, Kurds and Reds, drove cars and trucks, fought for the Czech Legion, trekked overland across Siberia, and finally boarded a ship at Vladivostok to travel to Japan in 1919. Her bravery saw her awarded the St George's Cross on numerous occasions.
