so far I have this list, but I'm not sure if they're all mounted maps. If you know one of them isn't I'll cross it off of my list. Also if any of them are not exclusively 2 player then they're off of the list as well, I haven't checked them all. This is from a thread I had posted on reddit but I am hoping to find more suggestions here.

Sekigahara

No Retreat!: The Russian Front

Band of Brothers series (Ghost Panzer and Screaming Eagles)

Polis: fight for the hegemony

Paths of Glory

Unhappy King Charles (mounted map available separately)

Washington's War

Hannibal: Rome vs Carthage

Twilight Struggle is probably the game which most people will see missing on that list (and 1989: Dawn of Freedom is often mentioned in the same sentence with this game when we are talking recommendations).

Polis: Fight for the Hegemony is not really a wargame (you even get a victory point penalty for doing warfare). Well, to be honest, neither is Twilight Struggle in my opinion, although it's definitely closer to the genre than Polis.

1775: Rebellion is another great wargame/euroish mix. It can be played 2 versus 2, but it works really, really well as a 2-player game.

Never played it, does A Few Acres of Snow belong on this list ?

I guess games that are not exclusively 2 players can go on the list but only if they're extremely good 2 player games because that is all they're going to be used for

Hannibal has a mounted map, however it's a "puzzle map". Check the pictures. You might want to wait for the new edition next year by Phalanx.

War of the Ring (Second Edition) is missing on your list.

Conflict of Heroes: Awakening the Bear! (second edition) has mounted maps and some pretty neat tokens, too.
