before my seeing comments: My solution: to rook mate\foresee pawn defenses , white's rhfive is start before mate or king move\pawn capture followed by mate

Easy miniature. Not immediately 1. Kb6? a1Q! Instead this is prepared by first decoying the bPe7 to e5 blocking the diagonal. The short threat is 2. Ra5#. Now in 1.. e5 2. Kb6 3. Rh8#. If 1.. d5 then simply 2. RxP 3. Ra5#.

Armand Lapierre (*5.6.1899 in Roubaix, +24.1.1968 in Wattrelos) French composer. "Armand Lapierre was the president of the French Problemists Association. He was presented in an article published in Thèmes 64 25\1962 pages 386-387."
