Miracle at St. Anna
Miracle at St. Anna is a 2008 World War II film directed by Spike Lee. In 1944, four black US soldiers from the segregated 92nd Infantry Division are cut off from their company during a failed attack on a German position in the Italian Campaign. The soldiers take refuge in a small Tuscan village, bringing along with them a traumatized young boy who, unknown to them, is the sole survivor of the Sant'Anna di Stazzema massacre, where hundreds of Italian civilians were killed by Waffen-SS panzergrenadiers as retribution for partisan attacks. The film was adapted from the novel of the same name written by James McBride, who also wrote the film's screenplay.
The following weapons were used in the film Miracle at St. Anna:
Colt Mk IV Series 70
Smith & Wesson Model 10
A Luger P08 is used by the elderly Hector Negron to shoot a customer in a New York post office. It is seen throughout the film used by German soldiers and Italian partisans.
At least one 92nd Division soldier uses an M1A1 Thompson.
Sten Mk II
Beretta Model 38A
German soldiers and Italian partisans can be seen with the MP40.
12 Gauge Double Barreled Shotgun
One of the rednecks at Herbs Ice Cream Parlor can be seen with a Coach Gun. An double-barreled shotgun with sawed-off barrels is used by a Partisan in battle.
Winchester Model 1912 Riot Gun
One of the Redneck's at Herbs Ice Cream Parlor is armed with a Winchester Model 1912 Riot Gun.
The two Military Policemen in Herbs Ice Cream Parlor carry the M1 Carbine. Note that they are the anachronistic post-war models, fitted with a bayonet lug and 30-round magazines.
Mauser Standard Modell
Most German soldiers use Mauser Standard Modell rifles with straight bolt handles
Browning Mk II
A Browning Mk II is used by the 92nd Division in the opening battle. The choice of weapon is unusual; the Mk II was made exclusively for use by the Royal Air Force, and was chambered in .303 British, not a readily available caliber for the US Army. The Browning M1919A4 would be more accurate.
A Browning M2HB can be briefly glimpsed mounted on a US Army tank at an artillery firebase.
The MG42 is used by German soldiers in combat and at the Sant'Anna di Stazzema massacre.
The M2 Mortar is used by 92nd Division troops during the river battle.
The Granatwerfer 34 is used by German troops during the river battle.
Mk 2 Hand Grenade
The Mk 2 Hand Grenade is used by 92nd Division soldiers.
Model 24 Stielhandgranate
The Model 24 Stielhandgranate is used by a German soldier to clear a house whilst searching for Partisans.
