Meuse

The crossing of the Meuse in the invasion of France I have read in a few places as one of the highlights of warfare in WWII.
Is this a overrating. I know the history of the crossing and it is remarkable but does it deserve such high acclaim?

One other thing is that Erich von Manstein was the greatest general of the war. I guess his experiance of fighting nearly 5 years would place him high, but this high?
