To me it is the shootability of the 1911 that separates it from other designs. (You might say ergonomics.) When you pick up a your first 1911, you see that you can outshoot your other pistols. That is before you put in a lot of practice. It might be the grip. It might be the trigger. It might be that your eye can follow the shape of the round top slide for sighting. (Try shooting a 1911 without a front sight sometime. It is amazing how well you can shoot.)
With practice, I can shoot my other guns about as well, but it takes a lot more concentration and control.
It seems to me that in a combat situation, when concentration and control are ebbing away, that the natural shootability(ergonomics) of the 1911 give it the edge over other firearms. ymmv
