This puzzle is white to play and mate in two :
Typical pin puzzle.
...yet still instructive.
Yes Queen sacrificed ,then checkmate from the rook .The black army was in trouble & put out of its misery.
It's not mate in 2.
Well at least it's a mate in 3.
That's the point. A puzzle that states it's mate in two, should be able to mate in two with the best moves from black.
Nice puzzle. It feels good to successfully solve one every now and then.
