Product description

Product Description

‘Without Precedent’ is the military biography of army 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 an aviation career that spanned the globe and the skies above it. All the while, aviation history had overlooked this intriguing story of the search for a downed airman, a damaged jet and the first Australian Purple Heart. Until now.

About the Author

'Without Precedent' is the sixth book by Owen Zupp. His first book, 'Down to Earth', was published in 2006 by Grub Street (UK). An award-winning aviation writer, his work has been featured in magazines across the globe including Fly Past (UK), Airliner World (UK), Aviation History (US), Plane & Pilot (US), Global Aviator (South Africa) and Australian Aviation in his homeland. Owen has twice won Australasian Aviation Press Club awards and is a commercial pilot with 30 years experience.
