Yep, and this is the end.  All good things must come to an end.  Looking back, I would change a few things in earlier chapters.  Thanks to all who advised and contributed.  If anyone else wants to start submitting their own revisions the way James was doing for a bit, feel free.

I sometimes wonder why you have Lacher on your list of killers? He was locked up while the killing was going on

You have the Gestapo man saying to him something like "We know you did this and the only reason we are not throwing you in jail and having some of our fellows beat on you until you tell us what you did is because the Abwehr (German Military Intelligence) thinks you and your group may be of some use to Germany". in real life the Germans did have dealings with Russian exile groups between the world wars.

There were letter bombs back then look on wiki: 1919 United States anarchist bombings

Looking on viamichelin.com Steibach Am Brenner is 498 km from Vienna while Innsbruck is only 24 km away. That most likely would have been the place to go to get a car repaired.

I know there is debate regarding alleged discrepancies in Lacher's testimony and his exact whereabouts during the execution, but from the Whites' point of view, if they knew he was a member of the guard and he was inside the house at the time of the murders, they probably wouldn't have examined the evidence against him with a magnifying glass.  After all, in real life, Letyomin and Starkov didn't take part but they were still executed by the Whites.

I also read on wiki that when Arkhangelsky was chair of ROVS he favored a pro-German policy.

Well, this is an AU story.  So there is wiggle room here.
