If you're interested only in awards from the communist period, there are only three books with information about them:
1. K. G. Klietmann: Phaleristik Rumänien [Romanian Phaleristics] Berlin 1975 (ISBN 3 87778 4003) - in German and English
2. S. Catone, N. Şerbănescu, D. Bedivan: România - Decoraţii 1859-1991 [Romania - Decorations 1859-1991] Bucharest 1992 - only in Romanian
3. Schmitt, Rainer - "The Awards of the People's Republic and of the Socialist Republic of Romania 1948 until 1989" - in German

However, if you have any questions about Romanian awards, i will do my best to answer them. You can also visit our forum (in English):

Thanks Taz, you are well-informed as always. We hope the new association will be legally registered in about one month.

I also hope to expand the awards section on www.worldwar2.ro to cover all Romanian awards, from all periods. This should compensate for the lack of good information about Romanian ODM in English. The new association will also have a website with useful information.
