Umar and Abu Bakr in Shi'a seerahs

Reading Sunni seerahs, I get sort of the impression that there was this sort of trio of the Prophet*, Abu Bakr, and 'Umar , completely inseparable. My question is to what degree is this characterisation accepted or rejected by Shi'as? Are there any good criticisms of this portrayal from a Shi'a perspective?

Also, on a slightly tangential note, does anyone recommend any good Shi'a seerahs?

If you're looking for earlier works of history, then there is tarikh al Ya'qubi. 

In more recent works, Sheikh Ja'far Subhani has a good book about the prophet ((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم))

Among English books I find 'Restatement of the history of islam and muslims' to be quite well compiled.
