Logical problem. In a foreplan the diagramed position reached again with the bP on e5 and Black to move. For this the key poses the short mate by 2. Nb7# and provokes 1.. e5 with the switchback 2. Nd7 exf4 3. Bxf4+ e5 4. Bh6 5. Bf8# or 2.. e4 3. f5+ e5 4. fxe6+ e.p. Ne5 5. BxN#. Also a variation of full length is 1.. Kc5 2. Bf2+ Nd4 3. Nb7+ Kb6 4. Bxd4+ Bc5 5. BxB#.
