In 2006, Hall and President Reagan’s Secretary of Defense and the former chairman of Forbes, Caspar Weinberger, published Home of the Brave: Honoring the Unsung Heroes in the War on Terror (Forge/St. Martin’s Press, 2006). The book chronicled the jaw-dropping valor of 19 of the most highly decorated soldiers, sailors, airmen, and marines fighting in the War on Terror. Sean Hannity called it “One of the most important books yet written about the War on Terror.”

In the realm of academic literature, Hall and Peter Schweizer co-edited Landmark Speeches of the American Conservative Movement for Texas A&M University Press. The book was released in 2007 and was endorsed by former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich.
