Battle Babies book wanted

I am interested in finding out more about the Battle Babies of the 99th. A close friend of mine was with them during the Battle of the Bulge. I would like to know if any members still have any old gear from their WWII days, as I would like to re-enact as a member of the Checkerboard division. I also am looking for a copy of Battle Babies, the book written by Walter Lauer. If anyone can lead me to a copy, that would be appreciated.
