Re: A really big 1911 question
The main reasons that the bulk of the U.S. military went away from the .45 ACP / 1911 combo are to conform to NATO standard and greater magazine capacity (Shoot a guy in the head with two rounds of .45, then shoot another guy in the head with two rounds of 9mm. Their reactions will likely be unanimous. Sorry for the gruesome illustration.)
...oh, and politics.
Knowing is half the battle...
Of course, the other half is violence.
