White to play and win
A special problem today, worth giving it time, and setting it up on board and pieces. I didn’t (though I did spend a lot of time on it, in my head) and I got part, and not the main part of Reitstein’s solution. So null points for me.
See if you can do better. I will be presenting this puzzle as a several part, since there is a lot in it.

Firstly, 1…Re4 is a spoiler (in the sense of not permitting white to play his main concept) but means white isn’t sacrificing anything for his attack: 2 Re4 Kf7 3 Rae1 and white is better.
So 1…Kf7 2 Ng5+ Kg8 (or 2…Ke8) 3 Qf8+!
I missed this move, playing…
