    Well, I've only been making models of military vehicles for about 40 years, but I have been aware of the Goliath and other remote controlled explosive vehicles for most of that time. I would add that the actual Goliath was not big enough even to carry one man (I think there is one at Bovington) and does not appear in the link given above as far as I can see. The one that was driven to war and then remotely controlled to its destruction was the Borgward BIV, much bigger than the Goliath (BI).

    I believe they were quite widely used at Anzio.
