Something forced is needed as Black threatens e.g. 1.. Ra4. The key is the straightforward otb-move 1. Rh7 with the threat 2. Rh8+ Ke7 3. f6#. On 1.. Nd6+, Kf8, Kd8 2. NxN+, e7+, Rh8+. Also there is the defense 1.. 0-0-0 2. Nb6+. Commendation. I would rate the hardness by 2 stars.

Josef Kabát (* 9.6.1954) Czech composer.
