Looking to get into the game but I was wondering if there are lists of what units come with each book?

Also, is there an option to buy JUST the ID cards?

Thanks

Any other places than the War Store?

How about as a PDF?

What do the other books offer that the main rule book doesn't have? Scenarios?

Captaincold69. Scenarios or a campaign, and specific rules for the specific period. For example, Barbarossa has a short map campaign, while Fall of the Reich has scenarios and specific rules to cover the end of the war time, and also some new Battle Counters,

You can find some video reviews on YouTube. Look for the posts by Joe under 'the Acceptable Casualties'. That will help you get an idea of what's in the campaign books.
The books give you orders of battle that help you construct appropriate forces for that particular theatre.
So as pzivh43 says, they contain history, scenarios, orders of battle, unit ratings (guns, armour, speed etc.), special rules for the theatre or period (e.g. Germans struggle for fuel in 1945 or British tanks unreliable in 1941), sometimes a mini-campaign, plus great photos.
The books sell out (e.g. Kursk is out of print, as is the original, long, Overlord book).
