“Without Precedent” the 2nd Edition by Owen Zupp. Released!

Without Precedent Book

On a happier note, given the current state of affairs, the 2nd Edition of “Without Precedent” is now available!
A new final chapter describes how the events of that fateful flight in 1952 came to be investigated and the paper trail that stretched around the world that detailed the award of the Purple Heart. The story closes with a posthumous award to Phil in a moving ceremony at the Australian War Memorial.
Through wonderful support from the “History and Heritage Branch – Air Force” the new edition bears the RAAF badge on the cover and is honoured to feature a Foreword by ACM Mark Binskin AC (Ret’d).
As mentioned, releasing this book is a ray of sunshine in an otherwise grey week.
Available through this website, or through a range of online outlets, including Amazon.
Cheers and thanks for your support,
