Warlord No. 299 cover dated 14 June 1980 for 10p.
'The Fall of France' cover depicting German soldiers in Paris in 1940. I think this may have been the only occasion on which Warlord had a photo cover. Could be wrong though.
'Big Willi' also debuted this issue. A great strip, regardless of the Viz type title, that featured the art of Alberto Salinas. I always enjoyed Salinas' artwork in titles like Warlord and The Crunch and he would continue to work for British comics up until 1982.

Warlord No. 298.
7 June 1980.
'Whirlwind Strike' cover taken from an interior panel. Artist unknown.
The Westland Whirlwind was a World War Two era twin engine fighter plane beset by problems early on (chiefly to do with the 'Peregrine' engine it used). It doesn't have the same recognition these days as the Spitfire or Hurricane which used the 'Merlin' engine.

Below is an ad from this issue. Next week would see the debut of 'Big Willi' Kastner. This strip, initially drawn by the great Alberto Salinas, enjoyed several runs in Warlord. Can't help but think they could have come up with a better name for it though.

D-Day. 6 June 1944.
From Warlord No. 89, 5 June 1976.
The centre pages featured a double page D-Day illustration by Jeff Bevan. In 1976 it was 32 years since D-Day, as I post this it is 77 years.
