No, for example there are two non-isomorphic Frobenius groups of order
72, one with cyclic and one with quaternion complement.

G1 = < (2, 4, 5, 8, 3, 7, 9, 6),
(1, 2, 3)(4, 5, 6)(7, 8, 9) >

G2 = < (2, 4, 3, 7)(5, 6, 9, 8),
(2, 9, 3, 5)(4, 6, 7, 8),
(1, 2, 3)(4, 5, 6)(7, 8, 9) >.

Frobenius groups of prime degree are uniquely determined by their
order, but not in general.
