Could the elusive Alamillo in "Time and Ebb" be the mexican general Luis Alamillo Flores, born in 1904? Not that he seems a match of Hitler, but being a military attache in Washington DC, Paris and the Pacific, he could be well known by Nabokov at the time of writing this tale.

Funny to think of that "98 war" too...
