Image: Yo-Yo World Trick Book: Featuring 50 of the Most Popular Yo-Yo Tricks | Paperback: 96 pages | by Harry Baier (Author). Publisher: Dover Publications; Reprint edition (June 18, 2014)National Yo-Yo Day
-- America owes its fascination with the yo-yo mainly to Chicago businessman Donald F. Duncan Sr., who spotted it while on a business trip to San Francisco in 1928. It was being used by Pedro Flores, a Philippine immigrant who began selling a toy labeled with the name, yo-yo, meaning come-come in the native language of the Philippines. By early 1929, Flores had secured financing, set up his own firm and manufactured more than 100,000 wooden toys and trademarked the name yo-yo. Flores realized people had to be shown how to use a yo-yo before they would buy it. So he hired a team of fellow yo-yo masters to demonstrate the toy's amazing tricks!

Image: D Day: June 6, 1944: The Climactic Battle of World War II | Paperback: 656 pages | by Stephen E. Ambrose (Author). Publisher: Simon and Schuster; Reprint edition (June 1, 1995)
D-Day (the Battle of Normandy/1944)
-- The Normandy landings (codenamed Operation Neptune) were the landing operations on Tuesday, June 6, 1944, (termed D-Day) of the Allied invasion of Normandy in Operation Overlord during World War II. The largest seaborne invasion in history, the operation began the liberation of German-occupied northwestern Europe from Nazi control, and contributed to the Allied victory on the Western Front.

Read: D-Day: June 6, 1944: The Climactic Battle of World War II, by Stephen E. Ambrose
-- D-Day is the epic story of men at the most demanding moment of their lives when the horrors, complexities, and triumphs of life are laid bare. Distinguished historian Stephen E. Ambrose portrays the faces of courage and heroism, fear and determination—what Eisenhower called the fury of an aroused democracy — that shaped the victory of the citizen soldiers whom Hitler had disparaged. Drawing on more than 1,400 interviews with American, British, Canadian, French, and German veterans, Ambrose reveals how the original plans for the invasion had to be abandoned, and how enlisted men and junior officers acted on their own initiative when they realized that nothing was as they were told it would be.
