    Tip:

    Included tactics: Silent move/Advanced pawn/Mate threat/Sacrifice
     
    Tip: You will have to use (not move) all your pieces except for the King. The first move is the hardest. Move your queen first. 
     
    This tactic occured on me in a game, altough not that complicated. My opponent took the knight instead of putting the queen on the h4-square , easily hit by Rh3, winning the queen. Later on i analysed it and found this tactic, which i really find instructive.

    milchmann22,  a very good puzzle!

     I was about to think there was an error, but then I realized there was not.

    It seemed to me that  

    2.  …. RxN  (instead of h6)  could save the knight.

    But white would have time, after Rxh7, to  move the other rook  to h3, then mate.

    1. Rh3   also does not solve, due to   1. …  Qe5.

    well, tha's a quick analysis; thx

    Yea, i forgot to add that in the comments! 

    2. ... RxN is answered by 3. Rxh7+ . Now black has to sacrifice a rook not to get mated, because 3. .... Kg1 4. Rg3 Rh5  5. Rh3 K?? (Blacks moves do not really matter because black simpy misses a tempo.)
