Fabulous and riveting movie. Edge of seat movie. This movie has it all; love, emotion, hate, lessons, racism, forgiveness and so much more. Great acting and total entertainment.

"Review" by , "A powerful and emotional novel of black American soldiers fighting the German army in the mountains of Italy around the village of St. Anna of Stazzema in December 1944....Through his sharply drawn characters, McBride exposes racism, guilt, courage, revenge and forgiveness, with the soldiers confronting their own fear and rage in surprisingly personal ways at the decisive moment in their lives."
"Review" by , "A brutal and moving first novel."
"Review" by , "Full of miracles of friendship, of salvation and survival."
"Review" by , "Miracle at St. Anna is storytelling in the great tradition, an immensely moving novel that...approaches the level of contemporary myth."
"Review" by , "A miracle in itself...Miracle at St. Anna is a haunting meditation on faith that?s also a crack military thriller."
"Review" by , "McBride is adept at describing the wartime state of mind: land and people lying ravaged in the wake of a wild brutality....The author is also skilled at capturing those almost epiphanic moments that seem to happen so often during wars...at these moments, his narrative, which is based on a true story, plunges straight to the heart."
"Review" by , "An outstanding novel about World War II inspired by the famous Buffalo Soldiers...The work provides us with a lesson not only about history but also about humanity and heroism."
"Review" by , "Great-hearted, hopeful, and deeply imaginative."
"Review" by , "A compelling novel. McBride combines elements of history, mythology and magical realism to make this a story about the little things like life and forgiveness and shared experience."
"Review" by , "Riveting."
"Review" by , "The miracles of survival, of love born in extremity, and of inexplicable 'luck' are the subjects of this first novel. [Miracle at St. Anna] is true to the stark realities of racial politics yet has an eye to justice and hope."
"Synopsis" by ,

From the New York Times bestselling author of The Good Lord Bird, winner of the 2013 National Book Award for Fiction.

James McBrides powerful memoir, The Color of Water, was a groundbreaking literary phenomenon that transcended racial and religious boundaries, garnering unprecedented acclaim and topping bestseller lists for more than two years. Now McBride turns his extraordinary gift for storytelling to fiction—in a universal tale of courage and redemption inspired by a little-known historic event. In Miracle at St. Anna, toward the end of World War II, four Buffalo Soldiers from the Armys Negro 92nd Division find themselves separated from their unit and behind enemy lines. Risking their lives for a country in which they are treated with less respect than the enemy they are fighting, they discover humanity in the small Tuscan village of St. Anna di Stazzema—in the peasants who shelter them, in the unspoken affection of an orphaned child, in a newfound faith in fellow man. And even in the face of unspeakable tragedy, they—and we—learn to see the small miracles of life.

This acclaimed novel is now a major motion picture directed by Spike Lee.
