Combat, mostly guerrilla warfare, commenced in 1954 and 1955. The rival factions of North Vietnam and South Vietnam were officially partitioned by the UN in 1956, although this was intended to be a temporary agreement in the aftermath of the French withdrawal from their former colony (French Indochina).
