  An Englishman: Good Evening: Fine example of how a white Knight on e4 can accomplish so much in this pawn formation after Black's f-pawn has gone.

Yes, indeed. The influence that N had over c5, d6, f6 and g5 really cramped black's position.

<19...h5?> may have looked menacing at first glance but it exposed a weakness on g5. After <22.g3> black faced a difficult choice and opted to sac his N rather than lose the pawn on g5. <22...Nh3+> would not have saved it since after <23.Kg2> the pawn is pinned so cannot advance and black cannot add any more pieces to its defence (23...Rg7?? 24.Nf6+).

I'm not sure that sac'ing that N on c5 was strictly necessary but its dominant post on e4 was soon occupied by white's other N!
