History Buffs, Suggestions Please

There seem to be a few on each subject so can you give me an idea where to start? Looking for three books, one on each subject; The Troubles in Northern Ireland, The German Resistance during WW II and last, Erwin Rommel.

Thanks in advance

My WWII reading is way lacking but I did read some good historical fiction last year:

One of the best books I read last year and historically accurate.

This was written by Rommel on his experiences in WWI. It shows where he developed his outlook on operations that served him so well in WWII.

A very good recent book.

Making Sense of the Troubles - Once upon a time this was about religion. It hasn't been for a long long time.
