Some of my favorite books about D-Day and Omaha beach, in particular:

D-Day, by Stephen Ambrose ---- probably the best overview of what went in to the invasion of Normandy

Omaha Beach, by Joseph Balkoski ---- Balkoski writes a very detailed and focussed account of Omaha Beach, specifically.  

Viking of Assault, by Susan H. Godson ---- This book is out of print, but you can still find copies (although expensive)... the link is to Amazon, I have no idea if it's actually available!  It's a great read, though... The book was written by Admiral John Lesslie Hall's daughter, and it covers in-depth his genius in bringing naval amphibious assault to both the Atlantic and Pacific theaters of World War 2.
