AN INSTANT #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
"An affecting, singular story...a bracing tale of life on the edge of death." —Kirkus Reviews
When veteran war reporter Benjamin Hall woke up in Kyiv on the morning of March 14, 2022, he had no idea that, within hours, Russian bombs would nearly end his life. As a journalist for Fox News, Hall had worked in dangerous war zones like Syria and Afghanistan, but with three young daughters at home, life on the edge was supposed to be a thing of the past. Yet when Russia viciously attacked Ukraine in February 2022, Hall quickly volunteered to go. A few weeks later, while on assignment, Hall and his crew were blown up in a Russian strike. With Hall himself gravely injured and stuck in Kyiv, it was unclear if he would make it out alive.
This is the story of how he survived—a story that continues to this day. For the first time, Hall shares his experience in full—from his ground-level view of the war to his dramatic rescue to his arduous, and ongoing, recovery. Going inside the events that have permanently transformed him, Hall recalls his time at the front lines of our world’s conflicts, exploring how his struggle to step away from war reporting led him back one perilous last time. Featuring nail-biting accounts from the many people across multiple countries who banded together to get him to safety, Hall offers a stunning look at complex teamwork and heartfelt perseverance that turned his life into a mission.
Through it all, Hall’s spirit has remained undaunted, buoyed by that remarkable corps of people from around the world whose collective determination ensured his survival. Evocative, harrowing, and deeply moving, Saved is a powerful memoir of family and friends, of life and healing, and of how to respond when you are tested in ways you never thought possible.
Benjamin Hall’s memoir includes a 16-page color photo insert.

Thanks to Fox for taking care of your employee/colleague. Fox went above & beyond…outstanding.
I would love to see Benjamin Hall make a huge statement by hosting positive stories or events for viewers to enjoy.
Thank you Benjamin Hall (& all war correspondents in front of or behind the cameras) for your service.
Darkness of war to an uplifting positive outcome…fabulous.
I can't wait to see what Ben does next. His outlook on life is going to help so many people. I've been recommending this book to everyone and anyone - it's absolutely brilliant.
I had a very similar childhood as Ben, even parents being from two different countries, father in the military, etc. My husband was injured in the line of duty (firefighter), and by the grace of God they were able to save his hand. Even though my husband didn't go through the absolute hell that the Halls went through, there was a good chunk that was relatable - especially with doing what's best for your children, and you can't be with your husband during his surgery and recovery.
I hope Ben does speeches. In his interviews he says he wants to share people's stories, but I also truly believe he needs to do public speaking events. His outlook on life is what we need more of in this world.
