One of the most famous images of WWII, titled Into the Jaws of Death - U.S. Troops wading through water and Nazi gunfire, shows U.S. soldiers of Company E, 16th Infantry, 1st Infantry Division landing at Omaha Beach.

One of my favorite PBS programs American Experience did a feature on D-Day. Check out the website which has some really nice interactive features.
An excellent history of D-Day, complete with photo and maps can be found here.
