A really good war themed fuedal-clan era anime that I can think of would be Basilisk ^^

You could Try out

The cockpit - The Cockpit tells three different tales from the second world war, bound together by the madness of war --and airplanes. In the the first tale, a German pilot is forced to choose between his duty and his soul; the second is a tragic tale of a Japanese kamikaze pilot who welcomes death; and finally, the third tale revolves around two Japanese ground troopers in the Philippines who are racing towards an airbase that might already be under enemy control.

Might be something you like.

Another really good feudal-era Japan one is Ninja Scroll, also somewhat of a classic anime series ^^

I've never seen an anime actually set in WWII, (Except Grave of the Fireflies, but I doubt that's what you're looking for) the closest I've seen to a WWII scenario is Valkyria Chronicles.

Now be warned, Valkyria Chronicles kinda sucks, but it's the closest I can think of to the sort of thing you're probably looking for.

Valkyria Chronicles anime was just lame. Video game was much much better.

Anyway, you could check out First Squad. It's a joint project between Japan and Russia. Studio 4C is the one who did the animation. I haven't watched it yet but I heard some good things.

I know Hetalia: Axis Powers is related to World War II. And sometimes it has facts. But it's really full of comedy and sometimes have no connection to WWII.

I have a great one in mind ...... Strike Witches

technically it is set during WWII even though the countries aren't fighting each other but rather giant alien machines called neuroi

(on a plus side they don't wear pants:))

Like previously stated, there is Grave of the Fireflies. It isn't an action anime, it's a "make grown men cry like 5 year old girls" anime. I'd still recommend seeing it even if it isn't want you are looking for, just to say you can if anything else.
