Fraser's Run is the story of a British and German pilot and an OSS officer during World War II. The British pilot, flying a single-engine Lysander, is killed on a mission to support an OSS team in occupied France. Details of his death are sketchy and another pilot takes over the run. Thirty years later at a reunion of the British squadron, the German pilot and the OSS officer are invited to speak. In 1974, now knighted, the British pilot hosts a banquet to honor Flight Lieutenant Fraser for the members of 138 Squadron. At the banquet, after the German officer speaks he introduces the former OSS officer who is well known to the audience as he has appeared on television and is frequently mentioned in the press. After much thought, the OSS officer decides to tell the members of 138 Squadron how Fraser really died and a dramatic tale unfolds.
