As the First World War officially comes to an end on Sunday, top bods at the military are warning the government to be on its guard in case the bosch try it again.
Sunday 3rd October sees the final payment of £59.5 million reparations the allies imposed on the sausage eaters at the Treaty of Versailles in 1919. The money was compensation to the war-ravaged nations of Belgium and France, and also helped the Allies pay off the costs of waging the bloodiest conflict in history.
In a leaked letter to the Prime Minister, a team of several top military officials from the navy, army and air force expressed their concern that the final payment may be the cue for the krauts to 'pick up arms and have a nother pop at the domination of Europe'.
In the letter, one top general states his opinion that 'They tried it twice before in quick succession and will try it again. They can't be trusted.'
Many believe that Germany's disappointing performance in the final stages of the summer's World Cup might also be a contributory factor in convincing the germans they should fire up the furnaces and start churning out tanks and battleships.
John Toshack, who recently stepped down as coach of the welsh national team said; "I managed Wales against Germany on several occasions. Most of the time they gave us a good spanking, which is to be expected when you look at the consistent quality of their squads over the years and their strength in depth. Whenever they won they would go home happy and their fans would be a delight to have in Cardiff.
"However, when we drew 0-0 with them in Frankfurt during the European Championships in 2008, I saw a side of them that sent a chill up my spine.
"They really didn't take the draw well. I tried to shake the manager's hand, but he refused and stormed off muttering something about gas chambers. I got the team together as quickly as possible and got them on the coach out of there!"
The coalition government has played down concerns that we could once again be cast into a major conflict with Germany. Prime Minister David Cameron wouldn't be drawn other than to tell reporters "Germany is a much trusted and valued ally, and has been for many years."
However, the Royal Navy has been put on alert and flying examples of Spitfires and Hurricanes are being commandeered from private collections.
