Summary
John Birch was better known in death than life. Shot and killed by Communists in China, he posthumously became the namesake for a right-wing organization whose influence is still visible in today's Tea Party. This is the remarkable story of an American missionary-turned-soldier who wanted to save China, but became a victim instead
