Let V(script F sign pG) be the group of normalized units of the group algebra script F sign pG of a finite nonabelian p-group G over the field script F sign p of p elements. Our goal is to investigate the power structure of V(script F sign pG), when it has nilpotency class p. As a consequence, we have proved that if G and H are p-groups with cyclic Frattini subgroups and p > 2, then V(script F sign pG) is isomorphic to V(script F sign pH) if and only if G and H are isomorphic.
