Another puzzle from Dragoslav Andric’s 1981 book “Matni Udar”.
White to play and win
Bernstein v Kotov, Groningen 1946
One I had seen before, but didn’t remember until I had solved it: but my past sight of this position must have made my solving of it easier.

3 Qh6+!!
3…gh 4 Rag8 mate.
R1R5/1r3ppk/4p2p/3pP3/1r2qPP1/7P/1P1Q3K/8 w – – 0 49
