Have downloaded heaps of pcs and stuff - like battleplans etc for the pacific island maps, just to see how bf1942 tactics compared ot the actual tactics used during the real attacks, but there's plenty or be found for Omaha Beach, like this for instance.

Also this:

And heres's a more general area view:

There are heaps more of these detailing the landing craft approaches, reinforcment waves and eventual beachheads.

There are heaps of photo's form the beach landing and after.

Have fun
