Lambert M. SurhoneISBN: 978-6-1329-2112-3;
HMS Erin was a battleship of the Royal Navy, a modified contemporary of the King George V-class. She was originally ordered for the navy of the Ottoman Empire and to be named Reshadiye, but was seized by the British government on the outbreak of the First World War. After the Russo-Turkish War of 1877–1878, Sultan Abdulhamid II withdrew the Ottoman Navy from use and left the ships to rot. One of the important reasons of this decision was his fear of dethronement like Sultan Abdulaziz I.
