Discover the incredible true story of the legends that built an American empire

The will to succeed defines the greatness of men.

Great men are forged through a combination of social, economic, and political conditions favoring both the individual and the greater good. When the conditions are just right, everybody wins. Yet when one interest trumps another, somebody must lose. It is this juxtaposition that defines history; either man can better his own situation at the expense of others or improve everybody's situation at his own expense. 

Character is often built from the latter and can carry men through the toughest of times. In fact, history shows us that a little bit of grit and determination can go a long way towards building something greater than oneself. This is what makes men titans. In addition, men must often think outside the box to accomplish this greatness. In other words, greatness is achieved by taking risks and by doing something different than the everyday. It is this boldness that makes history.

Take a journey into the minds of men that created an American empire.
