Benjamin Hall book

Veteran Fox News war correspondent Benjamin Hall will release his memoir “Saved: A War Reporter’s Mission to Make It Home” on March 14, HarperCollins Publishers announced Thursday.

Throughout “Saved,” Hall recounts how he survived his ground-level view of the war in Ukraine, as well as his dramatic rescue and arduous recovery. Hall shares stories about his time at the front lines of the world’s most dangerous conflicts and reveals how he struggled to step away from war reporting, leading him to cover one more story that ultimately turned into a mission of perseverance.

“For me this book is about being saved – it’s being saved by all these people. And it’s that understanding that can give you so much strength. We all think about Pierre every day and I think that’s really important for all of us to do and I think of my family every day and I went through everything thanks to them. And you have got to remember those close things to you and keep fighting for them every day,” Hall said in a statement.
