WW2 thriller about the rescue of a valuable resource from Nazi-occupied Sark (thinly disguised as "Armorel"). What makes it interesting is that the resource in question is a very pregnant cow. Apparently based on a true story -- and turned into a successful film, but the book's better.

(My copy's an original 1950s hardback.)
