The Conflict Beyond the Wall is an ongoing war in Westeros. After reports of wildlings amassing, rumors of White Walkers being sighted, the disappearance of several rangers, including First Ranger Benjen Stark, and the appearance of wights, the Night's Watch rides in force in a Great Ranging led by Lord Commander Jeor Mormont himself.
Jon Snow, personal steward to the Lord Commander, was taken prisoner by the wildlings, inadvertently leading to the death of Qhorin Halfhand.
The first open confrontation between the Night's Watch and White Walkers took place in Fist of the First Men. The Watch suffered massive casualties, but Lord Commander Mormont managed to retreat with the few dozen survivors.
