Age discrepancies D:?

Okay, I'm probably not the first person to realize this, but I've been wondering...shouldn't Edward Elric be in at least his early twenties by the start of the FMA movie? Here's what I mean:

At the end of the series, it's clear that Ed landed on Earth, at latest, around the end of World War I. Since he lands in London during a Zeppelin raid, the only one I know of, according to wikipedia, occured on September 2, 1916. However, the Beer Hall Putsch occured from November 8-9, 1923--a difference of 7 years. Thus, shouldn't he be at least 19? In the movie, as far as I could tell, he looks just like he did in the TV series, when he should look like a young man, albeit a short one. Am I the only one who noticed this? D:

P.S: Wasn't Hitler's buddy IRL Dietrich Eckhart, not Dietlinde Eckart? I've never read anything about him having a sister...D:

P.P.S: I know the Nazis are a touchy subject for some folks, so I'd just like to say that I'm not trying to be disrespectful or anything. I'm just curious about some of the historical discrepancies I seem to be seeing in the anime and movie, and I'd like to see if my suspicions are correct or incorrect. That's all, I don't mean to offend anyone, and I apologize if I did.
