Well it's a war crime regardless of whether the ends of committing the crime justified the means and I think they did. Doesn't mean it wasn't a war crime simply because we think it was the right decision. If a war crime saves considerably more lives than it takes, then committing a war crime is the correct decision, it's even the moral decision and there is no question that this decision saved more lives than it killed. It's still a war crime though, and one of the more clear cut examples at that.
