Miracle at St. Anna by James McBride
I'm glad I finished reading this book. I almost dropped it to my 'Quit Reading' category, but after a few chapters I found that I liked it. From what I understand the author did a great job in his research so although fiction it does carry lots of historical prevalence.
If your unfamiliar with the book/movie it's about a group of Buffalo Soldiers from the Army's 92nd Division that liberate an Italian town. The story revolves around the relationship between the soldiers, their white commanders, the villagers and the Italian partisans.
I'd say it was a good read.
