John Birch (May 28, 1918—August 25, 1945) was a Baptist missionary in China before the United States entered World War II, After the United States entered the war, Birch was forced to go underground, and he was eventually recruited by military intelligence in 1942. He served with distinction until 1945, when he was captured and executed by Chinese communists. Birch is considered the first casualty of the Cold War, and many hold him up as a true American hero. The John Birch Society adopted his name for their cause.[1]
