Without Precedent


The 2nd Edition is here! The final chapter in this tale has been written with a moving ceremony and a posthumous award, nearly 70 years after that fateful day in 1952. With a new Foreword written by Air Chief Marshal Mark Binskin AC (Ret’d), ‘Without Precedent’ is the biography of commando and fighter pilot, Phillip Zupp. One man who served in two very different wars. During World War Two, he saw combat on the ground in the Pacific before patrolling Hiroshima and Tokyo at the war’s end. In Korea, Phillip flew 201 combat sorties amid intense ground fire and the ever-threatening MiG fighters. Peace brought a career that spanned the globe and the skies above it. All the while, the intriguing story of the search for a downed airman, a damaged jet and the first Australian Purple Heart lay dormant. Until now. (350 pages)
