"Men of Steel" is the incredible true story of three generations of one American family. Eddie Coyle, Red Sullivan, Allen Collins and Hank Collins-four men from distinctly different backgrounds who became bound together by blood and honor. From the Civil War to Bare-knuckle boxing matches on the Barbary Coast, through Prohibition, Strike riots and the killing fields of Europe during WWII, to power and wealth in post-war San Francisco, these men did what was necessary to protect their families and what they believed in, and in the process helped start two of America's most powerful labor unions. Author Shane Collins, great grandson of Eddie and Allen, grandson of Red Sullivan and nephew of Hank, compiled this gripping story from tales told him by his uncle, grandmother and great-grandmother, as well as actual San Francisco police records. "Men of Steel" is "Roots,""Goodfellas" and "Walking Tall" all rolled into one.
