Are AT guns too fragile?

You can't get to America from Europe without a boat in 1941 so declaring war upon the US when you don't have a navy and you live in Europe is bound to fail.  That's especially true if you can't even muster the naval capacity to take out that pesky island nation just across the English Channel.

Absolutely. Plus, by Germany's standards the US had an enormous navy and some experience in amphibious operations. So even if the UK had gone down, the US was going to show up on Europe's shores sooner or later. Hitler's hope was that Japan was going to keep the US Navy busy, but that was just hand waving and failed entirely to take into account America's ability to wage a two-ocean war.
