I've been looking around the forums, and haven't found much on this topic, so here goes: What would you guys say is the best Single Player map of Omaha Beach, or any of the D-Day beach invasion points that has been released? I like the look of the Omaha Charlie Sector, but I know that it would be impossible to add bot support, and preserve the gameplay all at once.

You could play Gold Beach, this is a awesome map featuring the British forces and it has Coop support as well.

Gold Beach is awesome, but there's practically no combat on the beach. I can't really think of any other beach maps for Forgotten Hope, but you can find various user-made Omaha Beach maps with SP at planetbattlefield.com/battlefieldsingleplayer

I also loved the Gold beach map,(the way the beach was set up) but wished that there was the landing craft, and rushing up onto the beach against a bunch of machinegun emplacements, like in other Omaha maps.

I did not really like gold beach seeing for teh fact it was not fought on the beach like in history, still land battle wise it is ok.

What do you mean, "fought on the beach like in history"? There was little initial resistance - took the British less than an hour to get off the beach. In comparison, Omaha Beach was so heavily defended that it took the Americans what, almost three hours? to break through.
